Clause 2 of the proposal tasks the WASP with gathering information on and coordinating the efforts to reduce the spread of microplastics. Though committees can sometimes be overused where member states could fulfill mandates, this is an area where only a supranational group could effectively maintain a global outlook. Additionally, clauses 3 and 4 impose effective mandates upon member states to fulfill their responsibilities to tackle this environmental threat, with a necessary caveat for medicine. Clause 5 is the final clause and finishes the legislation with recommendations for further ways to inhibit the polluting effects of microplastics.
To conclude, ‘Reducing Microplastics’ is a proposal that tackles a major environmental issue which threatens life across all member states. It does so in a fair manner, using both WA committees and member states to create a comprehensive approach to the issue, while not being overly restrictive. Therefore, this Office recommends a vote FOR the proposal at-vote.

Current policy emerged from the poll conducted here, which showed a majority supporting telegrams disseminating these messages to all residents. Internally, however, the Office compromised between telegrams – which many in the region might find spammy, due to the default limitations of telegram mailboxes – and oft-ignored RMB messages.
