The second day of the GöMUN was successful for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The delegates were very engaged and enthusiastic. They were working on two different working papers, one presented by France in cooperation with Australia and one presented by Vietnam. There was a lot of common ground  which is why the delegates had trouble arguing against each others working papers. France’s working paper was defended by Australia and Germany, with the suggesting that he sees potential for conflict in the other working paper and the latter missing plans for the funding and the implementation of the proposals in Vietnam’s working paper. The USA defended Vietnam’s working paper, stating that is progressive and offers many practical points. In the end the delegates voted against the working paper of France and got together to amend Vietnam’s working paper, coming very close to reach an agreement.
