Ultimate Sustainability

Build a decentralized Agent hierarchy to represent the entire set of UN Sustainable development Goals (SDGs).
Stand up a common database to “track” the process from Targets to Indicators, predictive plus actual.

Features that make the potential for high (AI-enabled) added value:

  • watch for emergent Strengths and Opportunities in disparate global contexts (“what works – where – why”)
  • watch for emergent Weaknesses and Threats (cultural, political, resource scarcity…)
  • plan to replicate and scale up the Good - and mitigate the Bad - wherever possible
  • make implicit data and deep mutual causal interactions more explicit, to achieve a common understanding
  • create a trusted baseline and universal dashboard for objective reporting and corrective actions
  • use and enhance existing means of implementation and verification (for example: the Carbon Token Ecosystem “on Blockchain”)
  • watch the adoption, rates of change and direction of the most impacting technologies (e.g. the Gartner Hype Cycle is a good model).

Collaborate with UN on updating and redefining the SDGs if and when necessary:

It occurred to me that the “baseline” for an Ecosystem that incorporates all of the UN SDGs should be a close representation of all interactions between Humanity and Earth’s Ecosystem – from climate-driven Biomes down to the most microscopic life and structures. If so, it should be possible to ratify that the SDGs are a complete and accurate set, and that the plans for corrective action are therefore a more holistic set.

For example: how does the extinction of individual species relate directly or indirectly to our efforts to implement the SDGs? What about the same for climate change? Do these things ever support each other, are they mutually exclusive, do they conflict and where? What are the best things we can do today / next week / next year? …
