Honorable chair and fellow delegates,
There is poor environment awareness in Kuwait. Kuwait has extremely limited natural fresh water resources and therefore operates some of the world’s largest desalination plants. Kuwait is a developing country, and it most resource is oil. And that make the sea’s environment worse. Also air pollution is on the increase thanks to the increased traffic levels, and the emissions from local oil refineries and oil wells. The region’s marine environment has been under considerable pressure from the effects of the dumping of oil and by-products, as well as from the significant industrial and urban growth. And Kuwait official bodies include Regional Organization for the protection of the marine environment, formerly know as Kuwait action plan. Kuwait has an annual reef cleanup, usually held in September, to make sea better. Kuwait is party to international agreements on biodiversity, climate change, desertification, endangered species, environmental modification, hazardous wastes, law of the sea (1986) and ozone layer protection, and has signed two treaties prohibiting the development and use of weapons modifying the environment. A marine dumping agreement has not been ratified. Kuwait’s air pollution because of there near the desert, and there weather pollution are affect by this, like desert storm. Our country will plant tree, and do something else to make it better. And Yemen agrees with opinion, because Yemen has less water, and desertification.
Topic: The Obesity Epidemic and overweight
Honorable chair, and fellow delegates,
After the end of Gulf War, there’re a lots of fast food restaurants came to Kuwait. And many people in Kuwait love the fast food, and today, 88 percent of Kuwaitis are overweight and at least one-third are obese. Fast food isn’t the only factor affecting obesity levels in Kuwait. The desert country’s high temperatures – 110 degrees or higher in the summer – make walking, let alone exercise, a rarity. Only 12 percent of Kuwaitis have a body-mass index below the ideal of 25. One out of three Kuwaiti adults is obese, ten percent is morbidly obese. Kuwait has many people obese, bariatric surgery is now recognized to be the standard management option that provides significant and sustained weight loss in morbidly obese patients.
