INTRODUCTION to ISSUES
Thousands of Issues ... Relatively Few Meaningful Practical Solutions
INTRODUCTION to ISSUES
There are ISSUES that have to be addressed in every society ... in every human organization ... and in every system. Most times, an effective outcome in addressing an issue cannot be achieved by a single simple 'silver bullet' but requires system thinking and addressing many ISSUES in parallel. This was the theme of much of the thinking that preceded TVM in the 1990s and into the 2000s.
TPB/TVIA commentary:
Far too much of policy making during the past 50 years has attempted tp solve a problem ... and issue ... with a single issue focus and response. This might have worked in earlier times, butas the world has become more and more interconnected this approach is bound to fail. Take for example, the United Nations, which has a lot of specialized expertise in its various specialized agencies all of which are organized on single sector lines. In the real world at the country level the poblems overlap many sectors, and this need for multi-sector solutions persists to every community on the planet. The same critique applies to other organizations like, for example, the World Bank and most national governments.
My work in international development and humanitarian assistance was successful when there was the opportunity to engage multi-sector initiatives, whereas single sector projects rarely worked.

INTRODUCTION to ISSUES / BURGESS BOOK
Thousands of Issues ... Not ONE Silver Bullet
BURGESS BOOK - THOUSANDS OF ISSUES
This text originated in the early 1990s and resulted in a book published in 2006 to highlight the need to have multi-issue initiatives to solve complex enviro-socio-economic problems. A single bullet will not solve problems!
