The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways.

  • The rapidly changing state of the world makes planning in the face of complex interconnected problems a formidable challenge.
  • Our ability to conceive adequate solutions and strategies is often undermined by our lack of understanding of the nature of problems in their wider context.
  • The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential offers a radically different perspective to associations, policy-makers, social researchers and those concerned with development strategy.
  • By clarifying the ways in which problems reinforce and sustain each other, the Encyclopedia shifts the level of attention from isolated problems to problem cycles, and thus to sustainable strategy cycles.
  • This allows for a more holistic understanding of the environment in which global problems and strategies are situated.
