De-Nile is a river in Egypt: United Nations Security Council
Background Guide coming soon!
Delegates, welcome to UCBMUN and the Bay Area! My name is Nishita Belur (she/her) and I'm so excited to be one of your chairs for the United Nations Security Council. I am a junior from the Bay studying Neurobiology and Public Health, and I have been on the UCBMUN travel team since Fall of my freshman year. Throughout these years, I have staffed conferences, competed on both coasts, and had a (short-lived) tenure as Head Delegate. Outside of MUN, I research substance abuse in both clinical and wet-lab settings at UCSF, I coach high school parliamentary debate, and I volunteer at Berkeley's historic People's Park. In my free time, I read fantasy books, binge food shows, and raise my plant children. This committee's topic of Nile River Basin Water Politics is one of the public health sector's most prevalent issues today. Water plays such an important role in childhood development, disease dynamics, and food production, and as a Public Health major, I am incredibly excited to see how you all balance water politics with the nuances of clean water health policy. We expect a strong understanding of African politics and meaningful debates on the various political, economic, health, and environmental policies necessary to address such a complex situation. I am so excited to meet all of you and I hope you all have a great conference!Best,

Stephen SawCrisis Director
Greetings delegates! My name is Stephen (he/him), and I am honored to serve as your CD for UCBMUN XXVIII's UNSC committee! Having joined UCBMUN as a freshman and served as head delegate, I am more than excited to return for a final conference in the Best Coast. As a senior in political science, I am deeply interested in the intersection of environmental crises with security issues in the modern era; the Nile River's decline serves as a prime example of this uniquely 21st century issue. Nishita and I are eager to see how the pivotal UNSC ensures global security in the face of worsening climate change; issues that I'm sure you all will contend with in your future (or now) as we become the next generation of leaders and problem-solvers. Outside of MUN, you can find me trying to climb random walls, making Japanese curry as spicy as humanly possible, or gambling my life savings on mahjong.Best,
