“The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) says achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will take between US$5 to $7 trillion, with an investment gap in developing countries of about $2.5 trillion. At the same time, the most recent OECD DAC report shows that in 2016 the total official development assistance reached a peak of $142.6 billion, which is one order of magnitude smaller than the needs.” For further Details see the Report of Mara Niculescu, Partnership Development Analyst at UNDP Europe and Central Asia.
To even get close to the above Sustainable Development Goals, socio-economic impact (seimpact) needs to become the center of an additional Eco-System. seimpact is the value behind a new currency (called SoBz) – designated to reward and finance new seimpact. Each new SoBz is a piece of solution and development. No investors or donators needed to create it – only a Community of stakeholders governing it and accepting it as a means of payment.
