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?

Rural policies & climate change: Why are rural areas crucial to the green transition?

Nov 2, 2021 | 7:15 AM - 9:00 AM


Rural areas are crucial for the green transition. They cover around 80% of OECD countries’ territories and contain the natural resources and ecosystem services needed to sustain our lives. However, climate change makes these areas vulnerable. Join the Rural Policies & Climate Change: Why are rural areas crucial to the green transition? event on 2 November 2021 in the Nordic Pavilion (COP26) to learn more about the crucial contribution of rural regions in the transition to net-zero economies. The event is co-organised with Nordregio. The event will launch the OECD Rural Agenda for Climate Action, a political document calling for a stronger role of rural policies to contribute to climate change goals and drawing attention to much-needed policy action in six areas: (1) capacity-building; (2) evidence base; (3) renewable energy; (4) land-use and ecosystem services; (5) circular and bio-economy; and (6) decarbonising transport. The event will kick off with a high-level panel discussion, followed by expert round-tables presenting best practices from Nordic and other OECD countries in the fields of bio-economy and renewable energy. You can follow the event on-site or virtually via the OECD Virtual Pavilion or Nordregio streaming platform.
