Waking up nowadays is accompanied by the news of the ever-rising tensions between the United States of America, North Korea, and China. Speculations and mystical predictions about an imminent Third World War are in the limelight. While the International Community, with the aid of International organizations and treaties, have been trying to prohibit the proliferation of nuclear weapons and their use as weapons of destruction, the situation with the rogue state of North Korea is edging these peaceful efforts towards a precarious edge. In view of these circumstances, this paper tries to critically analyse whether the United Nations, a beacon of hope and peace after World War II, is equipped to prevent or in the worst case scenario, competent to deal with an outbreak of a Third War of the Worlds. This paper will, further, attempt to draw similarities between this period and the period that prevailed between the end of World War I and the start of World War II with respect to the then International organization, The League of Nations as compared to the United Nations as we know it.

However, due to several factors like oil spills, dumping and sea bed mining the marine biodiversity is getting affected. Therefore, there is a need to analyse the relationship between marine biodiversity and related factors. Standing at this point, the international community took baronial measures to protect and conserve marine biodiversity by arranging many international conferences, conventions and treaties. In this connection the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, 1982 is a vital one. The parliament of India also made a good follow up of the proposals and rules prescribed by the international community for the protection, preservation and conservation of marine biodiversity. Though many issues have been addressed amicably, a lot more is awaiting to be achieved.
