Here is the introduction of what is going on:
Position Paper Writing Guidelines
Each committee topic should be addressed in a succinct policy statement representing the relevant views of your assigned country. You should identify and address international and regional conventions, treaties, declarations, resolutions, and programs of action that are relevant to the policy of your country. You should also include recommendations for action to be taken by your committee.
The two page position paper should cover all the topics in the Background Guide, not a separate paper for each topic.
NMUN position papers are not cited as is required for an academic paper. They are written as if they are a policy statement coming from the foreign ministry. While they may reference UN data or past UN Resolutions, like in our samples, formal citations are not used.
Here are the 3 topics that should be addressed for South Sudan:
1) Promoting Access to Renewable and Sustainable Energy for Poverty Reduction and Sustainable Development
2) Financing for Development
3) World Commodity Trends and Prospects
