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 pcp sdg 6 brac p4gpartnerships.org

in the climate conscious world there is a lot of talk about smart city mayors exchanging solutions; but what about exchnages between 2 billion poorest smart villages

brac's been cataloguing adapation experinecs across generations - it was early into social forestry as an extension of the idea of cash crops (those grow to sell to citizens s)

but other cases emerge from disasters and brac having netwoirks that build on the lessons


Rice cultivation was the only

source of income for Goutom

Mandal and his family. The farmer

from Baroikhali, Khulna, lived well

enough, and was looking forward

to a good future for his only child.

But all his hopes and only means

of survival were destroyed when

Cyclone Aila washed away his rice

crops and left his fields inundated

in seawater. He was unable to plant

new paddy in the saline land and

lost his livelihood. And worse, he

had to stop sending his daughter

to school. Facing poverty and

frustration, Goutom was fortunate

enough to benefit from BRAC’s Aila

rehabilitation project which advised

him to use the brackish water in his

flooded fields for fattening crabs

in pens as an alternative livelihood.

He received 15,000 takas worth of

supplies, including nets, bamboo

fencing, baby crabs and feed. He

made a profit of 2,500 takas within

15 days, managing to meet his

family’s basic needs. His daughter

has restarted school. And Goutom

has again started dreaming

spring 2022 -as mother nature & humanity stumbles through top heavy nightmares - covid-climate-putin ... suddenly it seems everyone concerned with global village climate adaptation and deep women empowered community engagement has moved to Rotterdam

one of fazle abed's last global visitors winter 2021 was ban ki-moon  he who launched 2015 sdgs at Un to pass them on to one of the world's most practical public servants Antonio Guterres- at brac university commencement speech ban ki-moon 2019 encouraged students to help lead collaboration of global climate adaptation through every gps/community young people present in - iy seems that he planted www.gca.org in vienna until its transplantation to Rotterdam- aka world's largest floating office

the hague is where after a lot of iteration fazle abed chose for brac hq2 - as brac shares women can save sustainabili8ty community knowhow ever4ywhere brac international's location is extremely important to locate

today no royal family supports the un SDGs advancement more practically than dutch royals who are both envoys for financial inclusion and literacy

netherlands is the world's engineering epicentre for irrigation, wind mills and much more - in a union where eurocrats could not possibly have designed a more terrifying energy dependency with russia than they have financially quarterised ever since the berlin wall fell, the hague barcelona and rome are the last 3 youth sustaining capitals as far as mine eyes and glasgow adam smith scholars www.ecop26.com  can see- how's yours chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk www.economistgreen.com
