abedMOOC.com started from a brainstorming dinner convened by Japan Ambassador to Dhaka who noticed my father's surveys of Asia Rising begun with Japan 1962 (endorsed by JF Kennedy) had not completely detailed Bangladesh Rural Advancement's  contributions to sustaining humanity and celebrating nation building through women empowerment . Dad's last public birthday party had celebrated launch of Muhammad Yunus Global Social Business Book February 2008 with 40 guests at Royal Automobile Club, St James, London. Father had also paid for sampling 2000 of Yunus books, 10000 dvds (youtube style interviews with all grameen directors during summer 2008 when the Nobel judges opened Yunus Museum in Mirpur, as well as part of launch of 2 Journals by Adam Smith Scholars in Glasgow that had emerged from Yunus making the 250th keynote speech on Adam Smith Moral Sentiments Dec 2008. But Fazle Abed whom my father never got the chance to meet had started 11 years before Yunus Grameen Bank 1983 Ordinance , built health and agricultural foundations, and then schooling -altogether a 5 dimensions approach that was not possible to appreciate from onee dimensional microcreditsummit yunus the clintons, queen Sofia staged annually from 1997. Abed said we could do a Mooc if it was laid out round C for collaborations. He was keen to map how 6  Collabs per the 5 primary sdgs had been integrated through 2 quarters of a century 1972-1995 when rural meant no electricity grids or phones; 1995 when partnering platforms afforded extraordinary leapfrog models that could be designed with mobile networks and solar. It took 16 trips while Abed was alive (and the curiosity og many graduate journalists _ to get this mooc started, and we still try to update it even as Abed left the world in Dec 2019.

1.3 brac ultra poor

 When we look through the 6 most distinctive financial collaboration platforms Abed originated over 50 years

1.1 changing aid to business microfranchises and long term "direct transfer" partnerships in which elite global aid organisations became bottom-up partners and thereby learnt deeply about theior own purpose

1.2 microfinacce

1.3 brac ultra poor

1.4 brac city bank for small enterprises and as a gateway to capital poilicy decsiiosn

\1.5 cashless bank bkash.com

1.6 (internatjonal) hq 2 netherlands - neither remittances nor international funding could be done with singular hq in dhaka, it may be that history will associate abed even more famosus with ultra poor than microfinance

as well as associations such as global association of banks with values www.gabv.org currently annually mediated by MIT presencing network led by otto sharmer

I think there are 3 ways of looking this

good thing if it means people know that they are missing out on complete end poverty understanding if they fail to study abed as a unique source

bad thing if means that the world still needs to glorify separate instruments/solutions rather than their integration - brac 6 finance platforms embed the poor in nation building , all value chains that they can effectively participate in

a challenge if theorists write up bup case studies as complete as opposed to evolving methodologies

https://hummedia.manchester.ac.uk/institutes/gdi/publications/workingpapers/bwpi/bwpi-wp-0107.pdf 

this paper by manchester university on bup is outstanding as being dated in 2007 (still fairly early on in global recognition of Ultra ); from it we can see how much entrepreneurial concept testing was in motion 



since abed's death in dec 2019 when asked for who to contact with the most knowhow - brac's finacial services to end poverty is the soimplest guidnace question - his son shameran abed worls tirlessly to live up to his father's knowledge

Economistwomen.com teachforsdgs.com  Scots since Adam Smith have been curious about how the invention of engines Glasgow 1760s would be applied. In our view; the root cause of the world wars was that over nearly 2 centuries only about 20% of people (mainly white European/American) had access to the benefits eg electricity grids and emerging telecoms. Particularly across the Asian contient wher4e 60%^ of people lived, colonial empires especially Britain had not shared engineering except to control trade. My dad Norman Macrae hoped that teenagers would enjoy happier and more productive lives than serving as a navigator allied bomber command world war2 burma campaign. Thanks to Americans he survived; met Keynes, became The Economist's sub-editor of ending poverty, met  von neumann whose industrial revolutions 3 ,4 he became biographer to; was delighted in 1962 to see that he his war time enemy Japan and Taiwan had started up 2 Asia Rising models supervillages and supercities. By early 1970s fathers started debating Entrepreneurial revolution 3, 4 in the economist also known as industrial rev 3, 4. Dad defined IR3 as the era of racing to end poverty with win-win community shared solutions networking value that big corporations and big government alone could not sustain; for more details see our 40 year future history 2020report written 1984. By the mid 2020s tata from every gps on the planet would not be real time governed by humans but ai algorithms if these were diversely calibrated. During my father\s life- the all time great entrepreneurial revolutionary was fazle abed whose Collab platforms have formed the world's number 1 civil society network, helped celebrate empowerment of 1billiongirls, and offer 2020s benchmarks for sustainability generation. Lets explore 30 collabs abed invites all sustainability millennials to linkin as well as ideas to resolve final system conflicts eg climate that Abed demanded that hundreds of universities' graduate partnerships and humanising of AI would achieve in time.

2 FROM WORLD FOOD PRIZE SUMMARY OF FAZLE ABED 2015

 extract PDF testimony: In times of uncertain food security as the world’s population is projected to burgeon to more than 9 billion people by 2050, BRAC’s triumphal programs are scalable and sustainable, many of them in the form of enterprises that deliver a “dual bottom line” of a financial profit and a social good. Through BRAC, Sir Fazle has been a leader in empowering women and girls through microfinance, education, healthcare, and encouraging their active participation in directing village life and community cohesion. “We have always used an approach to development that puts power in the hands of the poor themselves, especially women and girls,” he said. “Educated girls turn into empowered women, and as we have seen in my native Bangladesh and elsewhere, the empowerment of women leads to massive improvements in quality of life for everyone, especially the poor.” BRAC has recently increased its commitment to girls’ education in low-income countries with a five-year pledge to reach 2.7 million additional girls through primary and pre-primary schools, teacher training, adolescent empowerment programs, scholarships and other programs. The Chairman of the World Food Prize Selection Committee and the first World Food Prize Laureate in 1987, Dr, M.S. Swaminathan, has praised Sir Fazle Hasan Abed as a “strategic thinker, and a man with a future vision.” Dr. Swaminathan lauded BRAC and its founder, writing that: “While it was set up in the context of the post-war reconstruction in Bangladesh, and its initial focus was on basic needs and strengthening livelihoods, Abed soon realized that the better strategy would be to complement state efforts rather than repeating them. BRAC is constantly innovating. While funding was important, Abed realized that the organization needed some internal financial resources in order to steer its course, rather than become diverted by donor agendas. He therefore set up a considerable number of commercial enterprises as part of the BRAC ‘brand.’ These include printing presses, manufacturing industries, a hotel, conference facilities, retail outlets and the private BRAC University, among others. Surpluses from these enterprises go into supporting BRAC’s development programs.” And finally, Dr. Paul Collier, professor of Economics at Oxford University and author of The Bottom Billion, summed it up when he called BRAC “the most astounding social enterprise in the world.”

our journal of new economics publishes why adam smith scholars value Glasgow alumni as first engineer to live up to smith's hopes that transparent markets could align with nature and advance all humans' lot -when we asked fazle abed if we could call our diaries from 16 visits abedmooc- he said if c stands for collaboration - we believe he'd celebrate today's students  zooming or meta around world class innovators whilst still benefiting personal tutoring - for millennials to be first sustainability generation that may mean that colleges intent on student debt need vanishing faster than harry potter can wave his wand- by the by: cannot wait for the day when potter will be curation connector for all scottish students helping millennials be the sustainability (annd not the extinction ) generation womensai.com

womensai update may 2022: dad norman macrae was briefed by von neumann 1951  ask leaders interviewed by The Economist what they'll do with 100 times more tech per decade - now that question connects every being - as 2020s is our last chance decade to unite peoples in line with mother earth - not against (each other putin) oit against earth (nonsustaibnble investors) not  against communities (lack of public servants who serve)

Statement by Ambassador Boštjan Malovrh, Permanent Representative of the Republic of SLOVENIA to the United Nations at the Thematic Consultation 3 of "Our Common Agenda" United Nations, New York, 21 February 2022 We align ourselves with the statement delivered by the EU and would like to make additional remarks in our national capacity. While all five clusters are equally important and interconnected, however, this third thematic consultation on the Frameworks for a peaceful world – promoting peace, international law and digital cooperation is particularly relevant at this moment in time. The number of conflicts and crises is rising at an alarming rate. The nature of conflict is ever evolving and demands constant vigilance and new approaches. The Secretary-General’s New Agenda for Peace that provides a comprehensive, integrated and inclusive approach to peace and security has our full support. It is important to also look at strengthening the responsiveness, efficiency and transparency of the work of the Security Council. Slovenia, also as a member of the ACT group, continues to call on member statesto join the Code of Conduct regarding the use of veto in Security Council action against genocide, crimes against humanity or war crimes, as well as the Political Declaration on Suspension of Veto Powers in Cases of Mass Atrocity. On international law; The purposes and principles of the Charter and international law remain an indispensable foundation for peaceful relations between States. We are therefore pleased to see Our Common Agenda's focus on the rule of law and the development and implementation of international law. We welcome the Secretary General's proposal for a global road map for the development and effective implementation of international law aimed at encouraging compliance with international law, it could also represent a step towards encouraging more States to ratify or accede to treaties of universal interest. We also welcome the consideration of holding regular inclusive dialogues on legal matters of global concern at the General Assembly; and we would like to highlight the important role of the International Law Commission in the promotion of the progressive development of international law and its codification. We recognize the importance of the United Nations as a vital forum for the ongoing discussions on the development of international legal norms and standards in the field of information and communications technology, which we consider a matter of particular global concern
