Vote Recommendation: Against
This proposal wants to tackle a specific environmental concern: the fragmentation of animal populations that can have dire consequences for endangered species. It attempts to address this issue by assigning the World Assembly Endangered Species Committee (WAESC) the responsibility of conducting research on barriers between animal populations, gathering data on fragmented animal populations, and determining the feasibility and need of assisting particular species. It then tasks member states with performing research and establishes broad mandates to ensure an independent environmental body evaluates all "construction plans" with a focus on dealing with potential animal population fragmentation.
While the proposal has developed far beyond its original text, in which it seemingly would have required member nations to fill in oceans to allow squirrels on different continents to mate, the current version still suffers from major implementation issues.
The proposal falls apart about midway through its mandates through a combination of extremely vague and imprecise language with an apparent loss of focus on what the proposal is ostensibly tackling. For instance in section 4, the focus on "the specific species" is out of the blue and incongruent with the text that comes before it. Section 5's blanket mandate on all "construction plans" is ridiculously broad, encompassing - under a plain meaning - the erection of sheds and paving of driveways. Clauses such as these combined with the General Fund being used to bankroll effectively a black hole of an endeavour preclude any support from us.
For the above reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote Against the General Assembly Resolution at vote, "Mitigating Animal Population Fragmentation".
