Topic: Deforestation and Habitat Destruction
In recent centuries, more trees are being cut down than ever, with the rate sitting at 10 million hectares per year as of 2015-2020 (FAO). Animals and ecosystems rely on the existence of these trees for shelter, oxygen, and more. With their habitats destroyed, these animals are being displaced. It is impossible for these animals to adapt fast enough to get acclimated to their habitat changes, and thus, as they go extinct, many beautiful species are being lost to time. Delegates, your task in this committee will be to find a way to combat the rise of deforestation caused by commercial purposes and urbanization, and create ways for the displaced animals to survive.
