Dealing with human needs rather than profit accumulation. The effect is using resources to enliven humanity.
An integral part of releasing human ingenuity to fulfil global needs and demands while allowing the individual to develop his own potential.
Tactics include: existing trends to research and analyse the areas of human need and determine the present state of resource distribution; futuric model to create a comprehensive practical vision of future trends in appropriating resources to anticipate and fulfil human needs; resource grid to hold the information of all the available resources where they are located and how readily they are available; human requirements intended to determine global needs, and to hold that as the primary value in prioritizing resource use; and time design to rationally set pace to, and create a long time timeline of resource appropriation and utilization while at the same time remaining radically flexible. An example is the storing and waste of globally needed grain for the sake of national economy which is contradicting the intent.
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.
