Ensuring that distribution of materials will continue to be directed relative to inclusive, futuric need. This will catalyze consumption plans for common distribution to be continually current in its materials distribution.
An integral part of formulating images for articulation of meaningful human relationships, to enable the individual to come out of isolation and respond to life's situations in a detached, yet comprehensively engaged, manner.
Tactics include: evaluational control to provide published feedback and condensed guidelines by which local representatives will assure international accountability for materials allocation; futuric research to enable qualitative and geographical forecasts as a basis for evaluating the allocation and possible depletion of non-replenishable resources; basic trust to provide back-up structures to engender the confidence of local man in the equitable distribution of resources; financial possibilities to provide an all-global bank and other structures to assure economic support for the allocation of materials; trans-economic exposure to provide structures by which the individual may participate in broadening experiences to assure a continuing body of people to engage in the maintenance of the materials allocation system. An example of this catalysis is that research on the supply of non-replenishables will lead either to plans for rationing consumption or to plans for developing substitutes.
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.
