Argentina - Considering the poor situation of women’s rights in most countries in the world including with regard to health issue. Noting in particular that these poor conditions force women each yearto resort to abortion which is not only morally and ethically condemnable but causes the death of thousands of human beings. Decides that educational programmes should be put into place for at risk women and that long-acting reversible contraceptive methods should be made available to them while condoms should be available for free.
 
France - Noting that 1.2 billion people on earth do not have access to electricity while some countries have a net surplus of energy. Considering that there are already regional grids that allow for
better sharing of this surplus and maximising the efficient use of low carbon and clean energy. Decides the creation of a world-wide energy grid (United Nations Council for Energy Globalisation - UNCEG), run by the UN with a minority participation of private companies.
 
India - Acknowledging that the present structure of the Security Council was the product of the Second World War and that it no longer represents the realities and the needs of our world.
Noting that no real progress was made since the question was raised by the General Assembly in 1979. Decides to add to the present Security Council 6 permanent members with a right of veto based on demographic and regional criteria and 6 rotating countries with limited veto for better representativity. In addition decided that there cannot be a veto in situation of crimes against Humanity.
 
Namibia - Considering recent reports that confirm the level of plastic and micro-plastic pollution in water bodies have reached alarming levels. Acknowledging that other reports confirm that plastic ingested by fishes among other end up in the human organism after consumption. Keeping in mind the need to implement the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals 6 and 14. Decides to phase out the production and use of plastic for non-durable goods in order to apply a total ban by 2040, and that the use of plastic will be subject to a tax collected by the UN which revenue will be used to fund research on cleaning and replacing the material.
