Providing adequate responses to the changing arenas of inequitable benefits by organizing the release and distribution of surplus goods and services to those socio-geographic areas which actualizes local responsibility for global needs.
An integral part of repatterning distribution of benefits to allow individual participation in local economic planning, and in establishing working standards and in planning the employment of workers' skills.
Tactics include: wealth reallocation to signal the common responsibility by a family covenant to 'All the goods of nature belong to all the people'; vocational opportunities to create a missional vocational thrust of local man to use realistic practices to create new occupations with new skills; worldwide inequities to point out that all under-developed countries have a right to equal distribution of goods, resources, and wealth to create life with dignity, as well as having over-privileged countries release the excess of all those materials; inclusive needs to verbalize the realistic needs of people in order to maintain an ordered dignified life; and multi-ethnic possibilities to relate the wisdom and knowledge of all cultures toward solutions for wealth reallocation. An example would be a speaker from underdeveloped countries explaining to the workers in an American factory the tremendous problems and inadequacies for that type of industry in his own country.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a collaboration between UIA and Mankind 2000, started in 1972. It is the result of an ambitious effort to collect and present information on the problems with which humanity is confronted, as well as the challenges such problems pose to concept formation, values and development strategies. Problems included are those identified in international periodicals but especially in the documents of some 60,000 international non-profit organizations, profiled in the Yearbook of International Organizations.
The Encyclopedia includes problems which such groups choose to perceive and act upon, whether or not their existence is denied by others claiming greater expertise. Indeed such claims and counter-claims figure in many of the problem descriptions in order to reflect the often paralyzing dynamics of international debate. In the light of the interdependence demonstrated among world problems in every sector, emphasis is placed on the need for approaches which are sufficiently complex to encompass the factions, conflicts and rival worldviews that undermine collective initiative towards a promising future.
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.
