General Assembly Resolution # 104
A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.
The General Assembly,
Acknowledging that there is a near-endless amount of oceanic area of international waters that has been unclaimed by member nations, or any entity for that matter,
Further Acknowledging that these areas are nevertheless still frequently traversed for many purposes including but not limited to trade routes, tourism and migratory culture,
Believing that it is the World Assembly's duty to keep travelers of such stateless areas as safe as possible with the help of appropriate pilotage,
1. Declares that a subsection of the International Transport Safety Committee (ITSC), the Universal Nautical Institute of Buoyage Oversight and Transportation shall design a set of buoyage and mark systems that shall be used in the pilotage of vessels at sea to warn travelers of hazards;
2. Stipulates that,
(a) These aforementioned buoys, lighthouses or mark systems shall be for the purposes of indicating...
The edges of a channel;
Hazardous coastlines, shoals and reefs,
The direction of safe water at a dangerous spot;
The deep water and open end of a channel;
Locations of military conflict;
(b) Each type of mark shall be as effective, neutral and intuitive to understand as possible with recognizable colours, shape and light;
(c) Resources and documentation explaining these systems shall be made available to member nations, navigators and the general public;
(a) the graphical surveying of international waters that are known to be traveled annually by at least a small, but steady subsection of the traveling population using data collected by the offices of the World Assembly in unification with data provided by individual hydrographic offices of member nations (the total sum of said area included in this project shall henceforth be referred to in this document as 'Oversight-Zones' ) ;
(b) the publication, and dissemination of such collected data in organized and detailed hydrographic charts;
4. Requires that Oversight-Zones be equipped with proper buoyage, lighthouse or mark systems as defined by the World Assembly;
5. Further Requires that general and/or lighthouse authorities of member nations assure the protection of World Assembly pilotage from harm, vandalism or theft while directing the duties of maintenance to the Nautical Institute;
6. Clarifies that this resolution does not interfere with any existing freedoms of nations to give general and/or lighthouse authorities the control over the pilotage in their own national boundaries;
7. Demands that general and/or lighthouse authorities or citizens of a member nation do not have the right or duty to pilotage an area that is within an Oversight-Zone;
8. Urges member nations to properly pilotage their own coastlines that are within their national boundaries to ensure the safety of the vessels that frequent those areas.
