Analysis on the threats defense argument

Threats to the Global Environment has led to productive debates at the United Nations General Assembly! Hence, they are asking you to create an analysis report to respond to the issues raised in these debates.

Your project as a consultant for the United Nations is to develop a report that addresses the issues raised by some of the member states of the United Nations.

This assignment will focus on the following four threats. Here are the specific tasks you will complete:

Step I. Consider the Issues
