Establishing skills exchange Improving exchange of expertise and skills Enabling practical wisdom exchange Devising skills exchange mechanisms
Enables exchange of procedures and personnel needed for equitable skill distribution. The catalytic effect is to make available the vocational training knowledge and tools of one community to any other as requested.
An integral part of providing necessary skills, whether training or personnel, to eliminate local pockets of unemployment while necessary industries lie idle.
Tactics include: future planning to provide communities and work forces with information about industrial intentions in order that training may be finished on schedule; human interchange to enable transfer of technological specialists, trained workers and management to areas where they are needed; training tools to redirect methods and equipment to new training situations when they are required; interlinking structures to coordinate all exchange structures from local to global; and funding procedures to discover funding sources, to distribute funds and to enable both exchanges and training. An example is when a country decides to set up 25 public hospitals in two years and calls for specialists to train indigenous lab technicians to staff the hospital labs. Enough teachers need to be recruited and made available as well as any necessary training equipment.
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.
