Unplanned land development Unplanned land use Unregulated land development Unorganized land scheme Pessimistic approach to agricultural development
Although the only real obstacle to agricultural development may be an overall plan, rural residents tend to be discouraged by the slowness with which agreement can be reached and the difficulties in dealing with the many small plots with many different owners and the variety of ways in which the land is being used. Old structures in disrepair are a constant reminder of economic paralysis, and leave a wide-spread impression that space for development is unavailable.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
