ACCESS to a Many Things that Matter
TPB note: This graphic was prepared about 30 years ago to highlight the reality that quality of life depended very much on the community and the goods and services and opportunies that were available in the community. This was prepared in response to the poor performance of projects of the World Bank, the UN and other ODA entities which almost always had a single sector focus when the need was for a place or community focus with every important sector for the community being assisted.

Air pollution in Thailand
(1) Clean air
Air pollution is widely recognized in the medical community as a human health hazard. During the industrial revolution, more goods were produced which helped to improve standard of living, but with more and more pollution. It was not until after WWII that major efforts were made to clean up pollution in the rich developed countries. In the UK killer smogs in the early 1950s changed attitudes towards regulation of polluting open coal fires for household heating, and in the 1960s noxious automobile exhaust pollution in Californa, especially the Los Angeles valley energized the regulation of automobile pollution.

THE PROBLEM OF URBANIZATION
AND
THE VALUE OF URBANIZATION
GO TOP
Rural - urban migration
For quite a long time, there has been a flow of population from rural areas to urban areas. This has been caused by big changes in the way the economy works and the way people want to live their lives.
In many parts of the world, there has been a massive increase in agricultural productivity, especially when measured in terms of food production per unit of labor. Two or three centuries ago, almost all the population were working in agriculture in some capacity or other to feed the family. In advanced rich countries, almost all the food is produced by less than 5% of the population, with everyone else doing something different. In less developed countries, the flow of population into urban centers has also been massive in part because of population pressure and the facts of low food prices relative to the past as a result of global agricultural productivity improvement and teh low productivity of most of traditional agriculture.
Real Estate professionals
Professionals in the real estate industry have had a big role in how the built environment has evolved. There are many situations where what has been good for the real estate industry has been bad for the place and the community as a whole. This is discussed in more depth in the Real Estate section of STREAMS

The idea of a 'SMART' city has been popularized in the recent past as information technology has become more and more cost effective. The
Getting data is one thing ... making smart decisions is another.
Most cities have evolved for economic reasons, with those in power in control of the decision making processes. At the foundation had been the concept of financial wealth creation and issues like social impact and environmental impact almost totally ignored. To the extent that these factors had a role, they were handled more through politics than in a meaningful way that would address social and environmental issues. This paper 'Circular Economy in Cities Evolving the model for a sustainable urban future' presented through the World Economic Forum in 2018 addresses the inefficiencies of the tradtional linear economoic model for cities' ... 'Making cities sustainable means rethinking every element of urban living. This includes moving away from practices such as landfill dumping and degenerating resources (e.g. the incineration of waste). It is, therefore, imperative that solutions are harnessed to ensure products are kept in circulation to minimize the loss of resources during the production and consumption processes.'
The following is an important idea: 'Waste does not exist in nature, because each organism contributes to the health of the whole. A fruit tree’s blossoms fall to the ground and decompose into food for other living things. Bacteria and fungi feed on the organic waste of both the tree and the animals that eat its fruit, depositing nutrients in the soil that the tree can take up and convert into growth. One organism’s waste becomes food for another. Nutrients flow perpetually in regenerative, cradle to cradle1 cycles of birth, decay and rebirth. Waste equals food.” – William McDonough, Architect, Co-Author of Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things (2002) and Author of Something Lived, Something Dreamed (2003) and Positive Cities (Scientific American, July 2017)'

Clean air
Polluted air of many sorts is a hazard to health, and reduces life expectancy considerably.
Clean fresh air is good for people's health. Particulates are particularly hazardous to health.
Without regulation and enforcement, corporate organizations usually put profit performance before public health.

Fresh clean water
Water is essential to life, but dirty polluted water spreads disease. An effective clean water infrastructure is a major aspect of human health
In the USA, much of the urban infrastrucuture is old and in desperate need of substantial expansion and upgrade.
Around the world, the rapid increase in the population of urban areas means that in many places the infrastructure is totally inadequate.

Food
Food is one of the things that is essential to life, and healthy food helps to establish wellness. The for-profit food industry has engineered food products to encourage consumption at the expense of good nutrition and associated benefits. In wealthy countries poor eating habits have resulted in disease like diabetes, and in very poor communities around the world there is malnutrition either because the food is not available or the food is unaffordable.

LOCATION / LAND / WATER / AIR / CLIMATE / ECOSYSTEM SERVICES / BIODIVERSITY / NATURAL RESOURCES LAND In its natural state the LAND has certain natural characteristics which are changed when there is 'development'. In most cases the NATURAL VALUE will decline as the BUILT VALUE increases. BOTH must be taken into consideration.
LAND - PEOPLE BUILT LAND USE for HUMAN ACTIVITIES, BUILT STRUCTURES, PROCESSES. ETC. ranging from large scale crop mono-culture agriculture, to mining, to deforestation, to mangrove destruction.
LAND - ECOSYSTEM SERVICES are essential for a natural equilibrium but totally ignored in the pursuit of profit. They much be valued and they must be numbered.
LAND - NATURAL BIODIVERSITY has been billions of years in the making, and might be just hundreds of years in reaching extinction on a massive scale. This much be valued and must be numbered.
WATER There are both FLOWS of WATER and STOCKS of WATER. There is also the QUALITY of the WATER and what it can be used for. Some WATER is CONSUMED and some WATER is contaminated. Contaminated water may be treated or it may simply flow downstream through a watershed doing damage as it goes.
AIR / ATMOSPHERE - LOCAL POLLUTION has a direct impact on human health at the local level.
AIR / ATMOSPHERE - ATMOSPHEIRC POLLUTION including Ozone depletion, Greenhouse Gases which fundamentally change the way in which solar energy reaches earth caused by emissions of OO2 and other gases at a local level but with global consequences like global warming, acid rain, etc.
CLIMATE determines many aspects of what is possible in a PLACE. Some places have rainfall, others do not. Some have temperate climate (moderate temperatures) while others are tropical and others are very cold. Some places have violent weather events ... hurricanes, tornadoes, cyclones, etc, Climate change is an existential threat because many established bio-systems cannot adjust rapidly enough and will become extinct.

Key Points: This article discusses how The California Endowment has used a midcourse strategic review to refine Building Healthy Communities, aiming to provide insight for other place-based initiatives and to add to the body of knowledge about how to support transformative community change. ·
With Building Healthy Communities, the endowment is taking a new approach to community change using a dual strategy to build community capacity in 14 places and scale the impact of its local efforts through statewide policy advocacy and communications.
In 2013, it commissioned a strategic review to reflect on what it has learned from the first three years of this innovation in place-based work. · Through interviews, focus groups, surveys, and document review, examples have emerged of how this unique approach is contributing to community change. The review also surfaced tensions created by the design and implementation of the strategy that could impede progress.

COMMUNITY ANALYSIS

Community Analysis
TVM analysis has a community focus. The frequency of TVM analysis depends on the natural frequency of the subject matter and the objective of the analysis. TVM reporting aims to make the result of analysis easily accessible, convenient and timely. The purpose of TVM reporting is to facilitate decision making that improves the quality of life of a community.
Reporting Entity / Reporting Envelope
Reporting about a community is primarily about ALL about the PLACE ... it is more than about the performance of the Government of the PLACE which is an ORGANIZATION in the PLACE, albeit an important organization. A COMMUNITY is the totality of PEOPLE, the PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY and the associated NATURAL CAPITAL, and the totality of all the CREATED CAPITAL ... all the PEOPLE BUILT STRUCTURES AND SYSTEMS that are located in the PLACE.
The STATE of the PLACE depends to a great extent on the QUALITY OF LIFE of the POPULATION that is located in the PLACE.
Everything else modifies the STATE of the PLACE as initially described by reference to QUALITY OF LIFE ... either directly or indirectly.
Elements for Community Progress Analysis
The primary community elements are the following:
... People ... families
... Organizations
... Sectors
... Activities
... Programs and projects
... Events
... Resources
... Constraints
... Possibilities ... potential
Complexity
The socio-economic interactions in a community are complex ... and probably the critical determinant in the process of progress. The graphic below sets out some of the pieces of the puzzle ... people and the family, the extended family and friends ... all together are the base building block of community.
In community there are all sorts of activities that go on ... economic, cultural, spiritual. All have varying importance. All interact with each other in a multitude of ways. They all have some role in success ... or they serve to constrain and limit progress.
Governance
There is also governance. Human society creates governance ... it may be light, or not. Governance that is internal, local and relevant has some advantages over external governance that may not be respectful of local conditions. A mix of both may well be best ... and result in a favorable enabling environment.
Organization and Organizations
There is also organization. Without organization, people are severely limited ... but with organization people can do collectively many things that they cannot do on their own.
Organizations ... High performance economic activities are invariably carried out by organizations. It is possible for individuals to do significant creative work, but production needs organization and organized investment.
Management System / Organizational Framework
More than anything else, a system is needed that allows the people of a community to self organize and optimize how the resources of the community are best used. The foundation of such as system is a set of appropriate performance metrics.
This is the goal of TrueValueMetrics (TVM), which is a system of metrics for socio-economic measurement that builds on the two key ideas: (1) the basic concepts of money accountancy used by organizations; and (2) the idea that this can be modified so that it has community focus rather than organization focus, embracing accounting for value as well as simply accounting for money.
TVM note: The key concepts of money accountancy used by organizations are (1) the idea of double entry; and (2) the organization of data into accounts that either relate to operations, or relate to the balance sheet. These ideas make it possible to draw conclusions about performance without having a full set of data but without compromising the reliability of the conclusion.
The system of accountancy that is used by organizations record money transactions and prepare reports to the stakeholders of the organization. There is a tremendous pool of experience associated with this work ... but it has the weakness that the impact on society (human/social capital) has never been part of the system which also has excluded impact on environment (natural capital).
Granularity
Even though a community is simpler ... it is still quite complex, but this complexity can be understood. Though there may be many relationships, they are relatively simple, and therefore, understandable. At the community level people have names, and are not merely part of a statistical pool. Activities are tangible, and accounting for costs and results is an exercise that everyone with interest can understand. The community is where progress dynamics are easier to understand and where measurement has more clarity.

Issue
Community
Basic observation
Community has been ignored by ORDA organizations. Lip service is paid to community and participative processes with rapid visits by experts. Most communities have seen very little of development importance in past sixty years. A vast missing link in the development process .
Prevailing response
A growing amount of “participative” development assistance, but the process is still controlled by the donors and the “top” of the socio-economic hierarchy
A better response
Community Centric Sustainable Development (CCSD) puts the community at the center of economic progress. It builds on the idea that not only “all politics is local”, but that “all living is local”. A key part of CCSD is using a set of metrics to measure activity cost and the related values within the community.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
