Ever wondered how much money is needed to alleviate more or less all suffering in the world? Here's the answer, or - it will give you some ball mark numbers:

UNEP: $1.4Trillion/year needed to reach global goals. The global aid budget: $160.60 billion$/yr, or 11.47% of $1.4Trillion.  So now you understand why about 89% of poor people never see any help/change? Either get ready to die or organize yourselves so that you can get part of this 11.47% in a way it helps mobilise another 89% private market capital. It is by being entrepreneurial- a cooperative that you will get out of misery.
The EU is good for 50% = €75.7 billion in 2017 of the World’s budget in Development Aid as per https://ec.europa.eu/europeaid/news-and-events/eu-remains-worlds-leading-donor-development-assistance-eu757-billion-2017_en

Photo: A coin for GlobalGoal13 CLIMATE ACTION by a cooperative that started printing its own money in the form of #GlobalGoal Coins. It realized that its members had an easy time solving humanities most challenging problems, however this was not valued and obtaining fossil fuel currencies like $, £, €, ¥, even a local bank account was near to impossible due to national corruption.  Their conclusion was that something was seriously wrong in this monetary system.  Therefore they started printing their own money.  For every unit of a #GlobalGoal that has been solved, a coin is produced.  Only with these coins goods and services can be bought in the cooperative.  Their reasoning is that if you are a sustainable organisation of person, you also have these kind of coins and you can buy their goods or services too. If not, you'll have to exchange your currency with theirs.  A coin for GlobalGoal13 CLIMATE ACTION follows the Emission Trading System for CO2e certificates.  The cooperative prints 1 CO2e coin or #GlobalGoal13 coin when 1 ton of CO2e has been removed by e.g. members planting trees.  The rules for the calculations are laid out in the UNFCCC / CDM manual.  The ambition of the cooperative is to combine this practise with a Multi-Level-Marketing system to have it spread rapidly as a local currency to foster local currency.


Agenda21, is the name for the plan of action making sure humanity will make it beyond the year 2100.  To make it beyond the year 2100, intermediate goals have been set out.  Every 10 years, since 1972, the best of the best humanity can bring forward, gather in the "Earth Summits" to make up an intermediate status, to adjust Agenda 21 and set-out new goals.
- The 8 Millennium Development Goals, set out in 2000 and to be achieved by end 2015
- The 17 Sustainable Development Goals, set out end 2015 and some to be achieved by 2020, some by 2030.
