healthy smart communities build/generate strong nations not vice versa - here are 30 cooperations proving this with special thanks to Bangla peoples hosting 16 briefings in dhaka 2007-2018 (other nominations welcome firstname.lastname@example.org)
we used to think national advancement depended on enabling the female population to hold up half the sky; two things happened in 2007 - first of 16 trips to bangladesh, subprime destroying much of youth's 2010s livelihoods and entrepreneurial energies - whence if millnnials are still to be first sd generation the challenge was not just half a population being productively and joyfully employed but women innovating solutions to system designs that powerful men had broken- below we adapt what fazle abed authorised us to MOOCoperation (ABED insisted his lifeworks sought to multiply cooperation) as his top 30 with what he would celebrate most in 2020s- we welcome chance to link alternatives if you think we have missed a top 30 solution millennials need to be actioning around every community email@example.com contributing editor Glasgow U Journal of New Economics Through 2019-1972 Abed partnered more stars of worldrecordjobs.com than anyone of his era - eg Guterres Ban Ki-Moon Jim Kim, Paul Farmer Melinda Gates Jack Ma; Royal families of UK and netherlands; James Grant; alumni Borlaug; Sheika Moza Qatar, Abdul Latif Jameel Quadir family; Soros, PauloFfreire alumni; Charles Yidan Japan host of bracnet; Steve jobs family

F1.1 changed aid by scaling 10000 community dev solutions at a time maximiing small business investment not charity and bottom-up service not trickle down aid
F5.1 Community Building for 100000 people at a time (typical metavilage 15000 homes family size pover 6)
F4.1 first training solutions - trainers village mothers microfraanhisers ; OVER TIME ABED FODSELECTED INTL DEVE PARTNERS MOST INTERESTED IN SCALING AND INDEED LEARNING FORM LAB OF AID2.0
F2.1 first scaled bus solution solution - rice farming - probably 2000 mothers of first 10000 needed to operate this microfranchise - three things to note- their profit might be small but as people were starving there was no wasted competition; getting a solution right for 2000 people at a time was worth ierative ersearch of most effective, efficient, expanadable way. Fortunately Abed as former regional ceo for shell has knowhow of wetre to source optimal rice seed and soon brac became the region's number 1 researcher of local rice seed varietiesd as well as wholesaler.
F3.2 Secong scaled business sokution: Abed wanted to maximise womens ability to provide local first aid and basic nursing. The nation hasdshortage of tariend nurses and they preffer to work in city with electricty! so the solution was to doordash on foot the 10 most basic medical and health care items. Each franchsier hd a weekly route of 300 homes. Agian brac would become the number 1 wholesaler of these items thus making sure that the parahelath worker was suplied and suplied her custimers at best ever prices.
F1.2 As hundredss of microfranchise were open , financial service for poor was needed. Abed approached gov and was told they stiill couldnt cope with banking for 10% in the city. He was on his own and this is how bran Micfrofnnce plus began. Please note loans were only being matched to busineeses abed had designed as resilient - in effect brac was responsible for village and later value chain across whole nation ...NB probably the most interesting economic lesson I have ever observed. Abed was proud of designing microeducation - the vast majority of the 100000 vilage staff he assembled were livelihood traibers. They may have taken on maual accounting roles when needed but they were only too glad when technolgy freed them to get back to entreprenurial training. This is the opposite of what happened n the west- there atm as first technology required bankers to invent another jb for their staff- basically banks turned from advising on saving and community building to issuing credit card dent. Ironically although digital tech should reduce the cost of serving small savings and loans there are few cases in the west of this happening. This is an extrordnary bublled that rich old nastions have yet to confdrnt - will they with web3 dao blochchain etc - the games of sustainable finace are yet to be mapped- and if they don't happen while Franciscan Guttres is designing UN2 tech envoy, when will they. We can also watch for leaps brac made in finascial services 1 to offer city bankig articularly to 1sdt generation citizens who migrated from its vilages; cashkes bank bkash; choosing its 2nd and global headqyarers as an optimal place for remittances and a constitutionl home stigling offers a model that eg the us standard ngo format does not. Brac also introduced ultra- its one finacial grant process. This it made one of the core research areas when brainstorming with steve jobs in 2001 led abed to open an entreprenurial univerdity for 21st C female graduate cooperation entrepreneurs
F3.1 Abed's preference for designing vilage busienss entreprenu franchises meant that when he designed a grant base solution he wanted it to be something that not only bangladesh needed but Un or other grant oranisations needed workdwide. Bangaldesh was blessed with one world class innovation in 1971's birth of the nation. What had been fomerly knwn as the East Pakistan Chlera lab had invented Oral Rehydration but had not found a way to market an educational cure as simple as mixing bolied water sugar and salt in exact proprtions. It took brac many atempts to design how to train ilietare vilage motehrs to be providers of oral rehydration. This is needed urgently if an infant in humanid climates is burning up of diarhea. Abed enetred this solution into uicef's year of te child. It won the grand prize and when Unicef saw this -he understood that brac's nationwide training of thisd could save up to a thrd of inafents from death. He also devoted his life to extending rd to other humid vilages- without this vilage china could not have developed. Both China and Grant were very grateful. In China's case they exchnged expert rice seeds as one example. Tgere was never any cross-investment in 20th c development of banagladesh and chiense vilage motehrs but they swapped ieas on solutions. Meanwhile Grant asked Abed for one other nationwide implementation idea. Abed said nation wisde vaccinateion F3.3
While Brac contimued to specialise in locatiosn where 100000 person metavilage community building was relevant- its solutions were now examined across the nation. About 5 years after brac had started its women vilagers had enough energy and savings to ask brac how to start build schooling systems with a two third ration of girls to boysd. Brac informal primary system design becamse within 10 yeras the world favorite non-gvernemnt owned schooling stsem- with 30000 franchised under brac leadership and many more vilages adoptng this system. vilage schools were energised by love of loval vilage motehrs who had themselves gained literacy and basic health knowhw from brac over the last decade. They may have had less fnacing thatn govenment schools but most girls gradauted from brac schoos in the top 20th ercentile. Indeed it was later to be thsi school model that made adbed the world's first education laureate - a worldwwise prize sponsored by the furst lady of qaar. Her own contributions to womens education are amazing with a girls eduation capus which asi featured as one of the locations of qatars wrkd cu (education scity). Every other year the nations' interantional cnference centre hsts wise and wish looking for woemn-led community solutions to advancing education and health. Qatar is also a lead nation at UNGA 2023 staging the half tiem review of where have the sdgs got to.

Unlike Muhammad Yunus, Abed's first priortity was to race to design nation leading value chains in those markets vital for ending poverty. Wiining race against other organsiatiosn with hi-tech was different than how brac had in its frst 25 yeras designed valu chains to serve what had started as 90% of the population as rural peoples. As well as its foundation agricultural markets of rice and veggies; it was time to be national leader in ppolutry- this took the integraton of 5 microfranchsie. In addition to vilage entrepreneurs ho kept the chick. 1 breeding a variety of chick difefrent from the scrwany vilage chick. Vet services for tegh suorchicken which was doing up to 10 times more work laying egs than tehscrwny chick. Distributing what became a surplus byond the vilages to the city. Growing chicken feed but ony in spacesd that coukd nt suppirt human food production.
Brac also introdued dairy but to do so it had to wait unntil the dismal eu agri policy stopped dumping powdered milk. When Abed died in 2019, what were caleld the brac enterprsies offered a spectrum of market scetirsd that it as vital for bangladesh's poorest to be integrated around. Its not clear whether any other nastion has as clear a strategy thiugh it needs to have. When abed dieed Bangladesh' foreign exchnage earning came almost equally from 3 streams. Food surplus beyond that neded to feed everyone in the nation - abed's first great achievement. When brac had stated million people daths by famine were not unknown. Remittances. Garments while brac never got into garment organsiatiosn its vilagers earning money from city arrarong had been designed around marketing artistic products, at one stage sericulture which ultimately failed due a pest infestation but existed long enough to sustain traditional silk deigns; social frestry and other ways vilagers could design climate adaptation oartnerships
It was in 2001 that steve jobs family invited abed to dinner- what was needed for brac women empowerment intel to be shared locally worldwide. After brainstirming abed committed to designing transformation of 21st C universiy- by starting brac university in 2001 he hoped that before his death 60 universities would celebrate female graduate cooerations co-creating and extening each other soltions in age of femine articcila intel as well as femine economic community buidling. In tandem to Abed's real niversity cooperations, Steve Jobs started to develop a university in a mobile (ie iphone)Brac's Ultra poverty grant was one of the R&d stream taht abed was confudent could add 50 million livelihoods if nations universities wanted to design grants to garduate ultra poor. Abed also started dsigning play schools with one of te furst MAs in this subject as a missing wordlwide franchise. Brac University also gave pride of place to james grant colege of ublic health.
Abed's 80th birthday gahapened spring 2016. He didnt intend a big ocaison but pretty mich every partner in development education he inspired was represnted. Abed had been working hard on the logics of develoment goals. For eample in sem-private conversation, he mentined the fact that educations milennium goal was limited to every child geos to rimary school distr=ted global fundng. While it wass kind of commonwealth aid ove 25 years to have ut nearly a billion dilars into brac primary schools, bnot being able to get one aid dolar for designing teenage livelihood education had been a chalenge that had much of his last decade was spent on. With stories like these it wasnt surprising that when the Un hosted the frst annual reveiw of sdg 4 education - a group mst inspired by abed stood u and said with edtech trabsformation this gola is impoosible. What emerges before abed's death in 2019 is now called the Un tech envoy digital raodmaing 2.0. A versin of thisd is shiwn on the top pahe of economistlearning.com . As far as we can see withouth worldwide coertionbthiright te 7 trasbfrnations pmapped, neither milleb=njial nor any 21st C youth generation will be susdtainable. Take finace for one example. The vast majrity of missing sustainability livelihoodds involve wither last mile srvice wirk of the HAU appriackes to the deepest and most ethical data acence AI can deliver. Alongside communiteis will need their own traeasureis- can web3 design DAOs to achieve this. If you make a list of every technolgy that could be mappd through Intel develoment blebed with sdgs , we may have a best last chnace..
