20th century intelligence - ending poverty of half world without electricity -although Keynes 1936 (last capter general theiry money inetrest emplymen) asked Economists to take hipocrati oath as the profession that ended extreme poverty, most economists did the opposite. Whats not understandable is how educatirs failed to catalogue the lessons of the handful who bottom-up empowered vilages to collaboratively end poverty. There are mainly 2 inteligences to understand- Borlaug on food; fazle abed on everything that raised life expectancy in tropical viage asia from low 40s to 60s (about 7 below norm of living with electricity and telecomes). Between 1972 and 2001, Abed's lessons catalogued in this mooc had largelu built the nation of Bangladesh and been replicated with help of Unicef's James Grant acroo most tropical asian areas. What's exciting is the valley's mr ad mrs steve jobs invted Fazle Abed to share inteligences 2001 at his 65th birthday party. The Jobs and frineds promised to integrate abed's inteligence into neighborhod university stanfrd which in any event wanted Jobs next great leap the iphone. The Valley told abed to start a university so that women graduates from poor and rich nations could blend inteligence as Abed's bottom of the pyramid vilage began their journey of leapfrog modles now that gridd infarstructures were ni longer needed for sdiar and mobile. Abed could also help redesign the millennium goals which were being greenwashed into a shared worldwide system coding frame by 2016. There re at Abed's 80th birtday party , the easy bitwas checking this mooc was uptodate. The hard bit - what did Abed mean by his wish to headhunt a taiwanese american to head the university's 3rd decade starting 2020?

5.5 climate adaptation - one of the longest collaboration networks

when you map bangladesh (low lying delta) it appears one of the most vulnerable densely populated but rural places in the world with oceans rise eg to polar meltdown so no surprise fazle abed was designing social business eg  forestry as early as 1988; trees were jobs/business microfranchises for villagers green foundations invest in - other famous early green belt movements by rural people include wangari mathaai out of kenya

given the urgency (many have only recently understood cop26) abed anticipated that many climate adaptation solutions need nationwide scaling/architecture ultimately needing government mapping so or in the case of solar brac helped incubate  efficient franchises for doing this from 1998 but passed them over to government partnerships from the 2010s

with 33 years collaboration action learning networks you can expect brac women to be as concerned as anyone on the planet about transparently partnering sustainability of next generation - clearly the challenges of development of those who have historically used the least carbon are the second loop round humanity uniting to prevent extinction by nature - help us at economistdiary.com ecop26.com greenbigbang.com - join brac partner bard college in animating 1000 + teachs in every earth day
