Developing credit expansion and availability, increasing loan possibilities and humanizing the loan criteria. The effect is enhancement of the common man's participation in the world's social development. The methods involved are the channelling of his funds into the flow of international investments through the creation of local cooperative structures. This would further the establishment of a world wide credit system.
An integral part of globalizing equitable investments so that each person shares in the responsibility and the reward (in terms of social benefits) of global investment schemes.
Tactics include: credit opportunities to broaden and diversify the international credit base; social investments to re-direct investment focus towards arenas of local concern and social benefit; credit availability to broaden the channels through which an individual is encouraged to engage in corporate investment; loan possibilities to provide the guarantee of resources, allocated without irrelevant obstacles or red tape; and investment incentive to promote financial support for the development of local economies. An example of the world wide credit system would be credit cards issued to every person on the basis of their investments.
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.
