UNITED NATIONS METRICS
Many metrics ... but difficult to use

THE FINANCING OF INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE
The financing of international development assistance has been both rather modest and also quite ineffective. More and better are both needed.

FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT (FDI)
Gives access to investment funds ... but too often it is corporate colonialism
Segmentation of FDI fund flows
The financing of international development assistance has been both rather modest and also quite ineffective. More and better are both needed.
Remittances are one of the most important area of growth and likely one of the most efficient in terms of delivering poverty reduction at a low cost. It can also be noted that the banking sector and financial services industry charges very high prices for a service that is vital but low cost for the banks!
TPB note: My experience with FDI over a period of more than 30 years has been that much needed foreign investment crowds out local investment and skims off the most lucrative projects. Worse many foreigners have been very comfortable paying bribes in a variety of forms to local officials at all levels, including very substantial amounts to those at the very top. Bribery and corruption are one of the lowest risk behaviors for international companies because they are most unlikely ever to be caught and it reduces conventioanl commercial risks considerably!

UNITED NATIONS and MANAGEMENT METRICS
The United Nations does a lot of 'big picture' metrics ... but much less about management metrics suited to making better decisions

SDGs - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
SDGs - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals were launched by the United Nations in 2015 together with more than 120 indicators of progress as a replacement fore the NDGs. An important criticism of the SDGs is that they represent discontinuity from the MDGS to the SDGs and too much of an opportunity to lose much of the momentum that was in place for the MDGs.

Goal 1. NO POVERTY
End poverty in all its forms everywhere
The absence of poverty results in an improvement in QUALITY OF LIFE
The removal of poverty requires a deep understanding of how the socio-enviro-economic system works and the decisions that have to be made in order to get to this outcome.
The idea of classical Western economics that efficient markets and self interest will achieve this outcome in the most efficient way has not been proven by experience, rather the experience is that economic efficiency as practiced in the capitalist framework results in a concentration of wealth and rather little 'trickle down' to the masses. This is to be expected when the dominant metric of success is money wealth with no consideration of the impact of financial wealth on society and the environment.
Open L0M00-SDG-01

Goal 2. NO HUNGER
End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
The absence of hunger results in an improvement in QUALITY OF LIFE
Reducing hunger requires a multi-element coherent strategy involving the availability of food and the ability to buy the food for the family. The availability of food depends on the production, transport, storage and distribution of food. Local production may be supplemented by imported food which requires the availability of resources at the national level or within the private sector to buy the food.
A substantial amount of food goes to waste. Some of this waste takes place in the agricultural production phase of the food chain, a significant amount is lost during storage and then there is waste in the household. In total as much as 40% of all food produced for human consumption is wasted in some way or another

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.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
