International Organization for Nuclear Humanitarian Crisis
The Committee for Disaster Preparedness, comprised of nearly a dozen countries across the globe, has agreed to create the International Organization for Nuclear Humanitarian Crises, which will perform the following functions to ensure the safety of humanity in the case of a nuclear attack.
Sponsors: China, Germany, India, Iran, Israel, Japan, Pakistan, Russia, South Korea, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States of America
Global Response to Nuclear Attack
- The Committee will hold annual meetings in which countries gather their nuclear experts and top officials to discuss the measures they are taking in order to prepare for a nuclear attack (equipment, infrastructure, innovations, etc.). At the end of each meeting, the Committee will publish an official document which details the steps that every country has taken since the last meeting, which will then be made easily available to other governments and serve as an official recommendation.
- Funding for countries affected by a nuclear disaster will be divided into two purposes: short term and long term. The IONHC will gather to agree upon a fund with which to aid a country affected by a nuclear disaster, which each country in the Committee will pledge to contribute to to a certain extent. Therefore, if a nuclear attack were to happen, the country that was attacked will be aided by collaborative funds from countries that signed this treaty.
- The Committee will use known information about each country’s economic health to provide a suggested sum for the country to provide; the country can then choose how much it will actually pledge. It is worth noting that these countries will not actually directly give this money; they will simply promise to provide this money should the occasion arise. If a country fails to meet their payment goal multiple times, there must be a valid excuse to lower the goal or there will be a warning. After three warnings, there will be meeting to decide whether or not the country should be pulled out of the treaty. If it is formally pulled out, it will no longer be able to receive aid from the IONHC, but allies and NGOs would still be allowed to provide for them privately.
- After people have been evacuated and immediate aid has been provided from the short term budget, the long term budget will begin to be implemented. The amount of money each country donates to the long term budget, which will be paid in installments across several years, will be decided on a case-by-case basis. This money be partially dedicated to rehabilitating the affected area and partially dedicated towards the permanent relocation and protection of those affected by the disaster.
Healthcare and Aid
- The IONHC will partner with multiple international health organizations, such as the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, and UN Peacekeeping, to bring in help as quickly as possible should a disaster occur.
- The IONHC formally recommends a variety of measures, which it will continuously update. Examples of these measures include:
- Preparing self-sustaining Emergency Response Units;
- Plugging emergency response units and vehicles into every nation;
- Spreading and disseminating information to citizens through standardized drills in cities, as well as through education in schools and workplaces;
- Building bunkers and stockpiling medical supplies for rural areas;
- Continuously updating infrastructure to be able to handle an emergency evacuation;
- Running civilian drills;
- Creating a national response plan for evacuation, medical needs, and general protection of citizens.
