What is interconnectivity?

No committee is an island. Just as delegates from the same country operate under a shared foreign policy in real life, delegates in the Intermediate and Advanced committees will be responsible not only for passing resolutions within committees, but for proposing policies, treaties and projects across them. Events, resolutions and decisions undertaken in one committee will impact others in real-time. However, the structures of interconnectivity in the Intermediate and Advanced committees are separate. For example, intermediate delegates from the same country would work together, but they would not be affiliated with their counterparts in the advanced committees. 

Interconnectivity is to be delegate-driven. Delegates from the same country will be put into contact with each other prior to the conference and will be expected to maintain constant communication once the conference begins, especially through delegation meetings. They must balance committee and national interests, while executing something like a cohesive foreign policy; this entails brokering treaties with other delegations, pursuing projects and managing the resources available to each country (see The Financial System). Delegates from these assemblies will be kept up to date on discussions in other committees through the Press Corps 1.0 and 2.0.

Role of G20 and UNCTAD

The G20 and UNCTAD assemblies will work towards grand resolutions that reflect not only the deliberations of their own respective committees, but of the discussions and achievements across all the Intermediate committees. The G20 will focus on building international financial stability within a forum for central bank governors and heads of state, while UNCTAD will seek to facilitate international development.
