World Bank

Based in Washington, D.C, the World Bank is the world’s largest development bank. It supplies loans to developing countries, focusing its efforts on agriculture, urban development, environmental protection, and governance. It works with countries to develop realistic debt-repayment plans as it strives to end poverty and build shared prosperity. Delegates in this mid-sized committee will question the balance of money and power, working to combat poverty and corruption in our world’s peripheral countries.

This committee is designed for both beginners and experienced delegates alike. Position papers, although strongly recommended, are not required. However, delegates who wish to be considered for an award must submit their position papers by February 7th, 2020, at 23:59 PST. More information about position papers will be found on page 3 of each Background Guide.

When not in a MUN related activity, Adam spends his time reading The Economist, watching House of Cards, and attending school.

Nikki Wu

Nikki Wu | Chair

Nikki is currently a junior at Crofton House School and is beyond ecstatic to be serving as chair for the World Bank at VMUN 2020. Since attending her first MUN conference at the start of grade 8, she has found herself immersed in the intriguing world of Model United Nations. Whilst her experience in MUN has taught her valuable skills such as being persuasive and constantly argumentative, she has mostly mastered the art of catching up on sleep after a weekend of all nighters and exciting debate. When not overconsuming chocolate and bubble tea, she can be found debating, swimming competitively, or writing short stories. Nikki is looking forward to a fun weekend of productive debate, effective resolutions, and a plethora of new friendships!

Noah Wong

Noah Wong | Assistant Director

A grade 11 student at Meadowridge School, Noah is excited to serve as the Assistant Director of the World Bank for VMUN 2020. Since speaking at his first conference in Grade 8, Noah has developed a passion for diplomacy and debate, which he hopes to pass on to new delegates. When he is not stressing about tests or procrastinating homework, Noah can be found in his free time fencing, playing basketball and spending too much money on food with his friends. Noah loves to travel and recently took part in a trade mission to Singapore and Malaysia where he worked to increase business opportunities for Canadian companies in the region. Noah is looking forward to meeting everyone and wishes all delegates the best of luck!
