Enlarging the individual's scope of policy-making to a global level. The effect is to assure equal distribution of all goods and services globally, and to gather, coordinate, and distribute global information.
An integral part of enabling participatory regulation by training the individual to enlarge his policy-making scope to a global level while participating at grassroots level; and by gathering, coordinating and distributing global information.
Tactics include: regulatory boards to create a world-wide system of administrative boards for collecting data and establishing accountability regarding bureaucratic policies on the local level; local standards to create structures to survey needs and develop procedures for world-wide coordination of standards; local intercommunication is intended to establish a worldwide framework for local intercommunication through coordinated reporting, data banks, and processing; administrative designs intended to create the structures for international coordination in the development of common administrative images, models, and practices on the local level; and distribution control to create worldwide structures to control effective economic distribution based on global priorities according to local need. An example is the distribution of surplus food to starving people through agencies of the United Nations or the distribution of technological skills, materials, and methodologies to underdeveloped nations.
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.
