Climate Change Action Plan

International Group 1 - Collective Responsibility for the development of GMOs


The international realm has a responsibility to the global assessment of environmental climate change. Because we are all actors using the finite amount of resources on this earth, we have a collective duty to respond to both local and global issues of importance.

Action Plan

Framing within a hybrid plan of determining intially who (private and/or public actors) will develop GMOs (in particular food crops) and who will provide the resources of that development.

The principle of a partnership between state actors (nations) and private companies to provide a framework for GMO development. (Addressing the idea that currently Monsanto is an multinational corporation with legal personhood as a corporation)


(Erase this text: here explain what your action plan is, how it will be implemented, its guiding principles, and how it will be enforced and/or achieve buy-in from appropriate stakeholders. Consider the guiding questions.)


(Erase this text: In this section, consider how your action plan can be framed to address the concerns of political, economic, and social groups. Your answers in these sections should consider the guiding questions on the student handout page. Why could you anticipate your plan as having a chance of success in gaining appropriate support? What will be its impacts? Consider both negative and positive impacts.)

(reduction of pesticide use and crop failure impacts) (assigning of responsibiity to develop/use depending on the ability to provide the resources behind it - 'aid'?)


- Convincing of public opinion on the overall benefits of GMO development despite the currently limited research (scare tactics? science frame? humanistic frame?)
