breaking the last empire : americans need to vote now are they separate and superior speciesn OR are they like the rest of the 8 billion of us? new summer 2019 : drucker ::::60 years ago dad, norman macrae, started the first of 100 conversations on AI (Artificial Intelligence), He had just surveyed how Japan was rising (lifting potentially Asians everywhere out of colonial era poverty) round brilliant engineers (bullet trains, container superports , microelectronics, the most reliable engines in the world) - from tokyo he brought back a pocket calculator- what would schools and the world be like if everyone had one of these?

Within a few years the world was debating if tech helps man reach the moon is there any mission impossible on earth.
5G 2020s (4 3 2) 1 G 1970s
And Gordon Moore of Intel had just written a paper promising that microelectronic engineers would improve tech 100 fold every G decade to 2020s -that's a trillion fold more powerful microchips in 2030 than man raced to the moon with.

Emperor ( QueenEnglish )

true media related QE3
An extract from my father Norman Macrae's obituary writer for The Economist for Emperor Hirohito- more at EconomistJapan
Emperor Hirohito - one of humanity's transformational leaders - by Norman Macrae 1 2 (written 1989)

Few would have forecast in 1901 that a prince, who was told at birth that he was the direct descendant of a Storm God and a Sun Goddess, would prove to be a bravely ordinary man who would affect uniquely for good the second half of the new century. That is the Emperor Hirohito's legacy
At his accession in 1926, Japan's military advance could not have been checked by any sort of monarch. Had Emperor Hirohito tried, he would have been pushed aside. Japan's entry into world war in 1941 was particularly popular with many Japanese and hundreds of millions of Asians who saw it as likely to end Asia's hated subjection to European colonialism, which it actually did. The Emperor's great service to this century came in 1945, when he claimed it was the consensus of the Japanese that they should unconditionally surrender, which it actually wasn't
Without the Emperor's decisiveness, the war would have continued for a time. At least a dozen nuclear bombs would have been dropped on Japan, at a time when most of the scientists who invented them had no inkling of how far fatal radiation sickness from them could spread ; they do not really know even now. Soviet troops as senior partners to Chinese communists would have swarmed into Asia, imposing a clamp on much of East Asia, just as it was imposed on East Europe.

In April 2019 the Hirohito's grandson succeeded- the first year of Japan's Reiwa aer looks like the most exciting ever led out of one nation -
it ends with a tranafolmration of the olympics
it begins by hosting g20 in osaka - for this interested in SDG economics Japan is meeting all African leaders at ticad yokohama aug 2019 and taking views to UN sdg summit in september
the emperor has also invited pope francis to host a week of faith dialogues and has asked which of 196 nations leaders would like to attend a joint celebration of uniting youth and futures that are happy and free- i have little doubt that Japan's people deserve and will be as happy as free as any on earth but there remains a lot of work so that the two thirds of people who are asian can humanise artificial intelligences so all the worlds daughters and sons can be free and happy

if you nof a two percent of peoplws who are trying harder to humanise tech for everyone would love to be beamed in

kai-fu lee

Kai-Fu Lee
Fortunately for millennials and their parents Mr Lee published the best seller “AI Superpowers : China, Silicon Valley and the new world order” before Mr Trump’s oriental witch hunt. The cat is out of the bag- AI is –or needs to be- the next universal human language. Coming as it does in multiple forms mapped out in KFL’s book such as place AI, internet AI, corporate business AI, conscious market purpose or educational AI, sensory AI ..
We who dream of making youth and education great again -for every girl and boy to be free to build livelihoods and families -  are fortunate that Kai-Fu survived cancer. As the west was subpriming finance, this transferred him via a Hong Kong hospital from the head of Google AI in silicon valley to hubs outside Tsinghua university most hungry both for AI and supercity shared economic clouds. Smart mobile students are empowered to conceive of to rebirth a city round sharing infrastructures from bikes to apartments to co-work spaces located alongside university campuses. The more so in  a nation determined to value 21st C women as holding up half the sky
Chinese Capitalism and healthy society has been on a miraculous journey since 1976- just imagine if one fifth of the world people were still locked out of world trade-likely whole of Asia would now be failing. In 1975 there were no non-state companies. Then billionaire diaspora inward investors were freed to start companies as were village families using rice science to end famine. Up to the 2000s, China remained at least 2G’s behind silicon valley then it caught up. In 2017 China celebrated 5 million youth startups. This was accelerated by every university city planning an avenue of AI entrepreneurs something first tested around Beijing’s and the world’s most curious universities Tsinghua , Peking, Renmin and Beijing normal. Kai-Fu was there to advise this most extraordinary transformation of a somewhat sleepy but most prestigious university suburb into wave upon wave of entrepreneurial youth dreams for serving china. The great thing about Place AI is you don’t need to politically theorise about it, just go visit it. Millennial friendships are a win-win currency

Prince Charles and Sustaining Master Archie : QueenEnglish valuingyouth wework

#metoo Hopefully any true media agent at journalistsforhumanity in the reigns of KingCharles.and Emperor Reiwa will have been required to learn this fable by heart - well at least at the peoples world service media the bbc need to know all about this half a millennium's herstory Q? welcome

With the possible exception of Japan Emperor Family (who Charles has enjoyed good relations with since 1964 olympics) nobody is in a better position to mooc a herstory curriculum of how most of the world's people (Asians are about 67% of our species) were trapped in poverty by the way the colonial and industrial ages spun once it was discovered the world c.1500 mother earth was round , Thus the fist key national advantage went to whomever could build the biggest ships of war - and it was mainly the brits that led north europeans not just to go to america but to colonise the south and east asia coasts- you need a really big boat because in those pre suez days you had to sail all the way round africa to get to asia- a job (that could take a year there and back if your health permitted)  that was so unpleasant that slavery probably started as much as press-ganging crew as for other dismal economic reasons (more on sustaining black & white america ar WRJ Rice & Jackson)

Its worth remembering that until the train's steam engine the fastest way to travel was by horse or boat, and so neither trade nor  tourism nor communications (whether real learning or news of any sort) traveled fast, and it was imperative that commands passed down the line.

READ ALL ABOUT IT: The Brits designed education so that those who came top (at the bar of london or the Oxbridge) passed standardised exams (ie subjects where there \was nothing left to explore or dream about) in the exact opposite of entrepreneurial modus operandi freeing speech to ask whether diversity of nature or cultures let alone languages might lead to more than one answer particularly if looked at what was most locally needed for family-loving people to be free  and happy

The Herstory of the UK royal family's rulership is really quite peculiar- its worth noting these (transformational if not downright revolutuonary) steps though there are others you can add in

around 1710 scotland went bankrupt- without knowing it the peoples savings had been invested abroad in a bubble possibly a failed  part of the emergence of the  panama canal- whence the hostile takeover of Scots by london- in other words the scots were one of london's first colonies- the origin of economics: adam smiths books from 1748 on trust (moral sentiments) worthy of market economics are written from this point of view: scots were already losing control of market transparency, and even if nobody cared about scots his piece de resistance : 1776 advantage of nations argued that once so many people had gioe to settle such a large land as the usa- london would be wise to design- w n-win trades and us independence-- of course london wasn't that adaptable and from that day on Boston became a rather unlikely hub for open sourcing the best humans can connect-

 probably this right old muddle accelerated colonisatioj of south asia and even through to malaysia including what we call singapore and now north  to china's south coast and an island  hong kong that became as vital to the future of the human lot as ever Britannia once was

the big question to anyone curious about Britannia's conversion beyond chief slavemakers is when did commonwealth become something the royal family (at least privately even if by now they were told to stay out of politics ) preferred to being lord of the empire- and here eneters another scot james wilson enters the picture - originally hatmaker in scotland he was fed up with the poverty of his workers caused by ever greater taxation and selfishness from london's parliament (by james time, less than 100 years after adam's morals book, more than half of scots had emigrated through lack of livelihoods) so james became an MP at Westminster's House of Parliament- and to start a movement in london fashionable cafes and royal societies james started telling the story and numbers of how the corn laws (through which landowners burnt corn if they couldnt get a high enough price) was starving up to a quarter of irish people to death- queen victoria who after albert died turned into a chronic depressive met james while she was still liking people - additionally she was advised by wellington of waterloo that trains were causing people to move around and having seen the french guillotine the 0.1 % of richest -the corn laws at least should be repealed. They were but not in time for 150 years of hatred and terror campaigns between southern ireland and the UK. If lreland was the biggest neighboring tragedy of empire designing trade for the few, the india subcontinent was the biggest in the 1850s- one quarter of the world's people were effectively having their trade ruled by britannia. James convinced victoria to let him go to calcutta to design a new economy- he foredm teh chartered bank but died of diarrhea 9 months into the project- it took 100 years  before a calcutta lab invented oral rehydration - the biggest infant and old person killer in the world of the tropics could be cured by mixing boiled water sugar and salts in the right proportion. This solution from the 1870s launched girl empowerment in poorest bangladesh and south china villages. but what of James and victoria's commonwealth

well walter bagehot james son in law became the next editor of the economist and he helped redesign currency systems - something peculiar happened britain didnt have enough gold for victoria to keep her promise to redeem a paper note. So instead of the british empire beginning to pull back it forged ahead to hong kong and demanded the chinese accept opium as a trading currency. The chinese wisely fell on their sword and withdrew from global trade markets for over 110 year5s - perhaps the most tragic (uneconomic) story in human history as up til then china had been the largest population and biggest economy.

and so the world went on - today paper currency is printed by politicians particularly when their big banks make a mistake like subprime 2008- in other words the next generation pays for the mistakes of richest elders through the rot that is paper currency and the rot that is any unecessary war. Now I am not bright enough to decide on when a war is necessary - and being born in 1951 to a father who had spent his last dats asa teen navigating airplaned over modernday myammar and bangladesh I thank the americans for town intervening in the old worlds wars and ridding us of hitler,

CONCLUSION TODAY Britannia and japan owe all asians human development around siutainability goals and china and bangaladesh women empowerment has innovated the most extraordinary solution s ever seen since 1972- and i just wish prince charles would get someone to mooc the reality herstory of economic development by and for the people before fake media and some sad loss of confidence out of the americas turns the ear of 100 times more tech every decade sine the moon race into orwell big brother end game instead of every girls right to be as free and happy as every boy

i am nit a historian. I am a statistician. I have never had enough money to collect my own data. I understand that artificial intelligences is now a trillion times more effective than my brain power but we still have to choose what big data we feed into the AI and what the purp;ose of the data owner is. So could prince charles and a member of japanese emperor family invite boris and macron to a private cup of tea and see if they can map soe data worth apping AI to?

how did london temporarily become the world's biggest city - and did its evolution mainly ban skyscrapers as the royals didnt want their bedrooms spied on by peoples with telescopes.Most people spent their whole lives wi9th 15 miles of where food was grown and hi=ome was born, Its interesting to see how large the royal gardens still are in London- for most the invention of the underground was a double miracle- it freed travel and its was pribaby as heatb down under than it was on the Dickensian streets

my last happy 12 months in hungary and poland - maths guy tales of pope francis von neumann soros paul farmer yunus and

when my father norman macrae retired after 50 years at The Economist of celebrating whenever east and west and south -and tech wizards - helped to end poverty- especially that 400 years of british slave trading and colonisation had trapped most of 60% of humans are asia in - he spent a decade writing columns for other papers like the sunday times and doing john von neumann's biography

it was therefore a huge treat for me to attend the 20th open society awards hosted by soros out of his (central european)university in budapest- i am a maths guy so i always wanted to see the place where the turn of century 19 had brought up the greatest maths kids ever- on the happy days I visited budapest its a jewel of a city with people working so hard to get back on trading maps that over 40 years of cold war ripped asunder in east and south europe and eurasia, and which just as things seemed to be on the up the interventions in iraq libya and syria to name but 3 have caused so much border havoc that berlin and brussels have made worse for so many peoples peripheral to the german-french-luxembourg-belgium combine harvester

but the networking reason for being in budapest 2-12
where soros nominated his greatest hero as sir fazle abed and paul   farmer was seconding the celebrations on behalf of all health servants for the poor
but then the eu started collapsing - as always that means germany belgium luxembourg france externalise risks onto south and east europeans and now budapest having seen vast trains of refugees enter the eu via its borders has turned all angry especially against soros who had done nothing other than plant a university for enlightenment
there are 3 great human development miracles that have happened since i was born in 1950s - japan and all the far east islands eg singapore HK taowan (and isthmus korea s), china mainland, banagldesh- of these none are remotely possible to study in any american or west european university but bangladesh womens building of the 8th largest population born poorest in 1971 is the most heroic things that has ever happened on the ground (what most heroic in virtual space is a different section of though the two over;ap - see also and and or help linkedin UNwomens

my family tried unsuccessfully to help dr yunus on 3 occasions- we were locked in to grameen compound in dhaka the day that nations supreme court  ruled that yunus was too old to lead a government bank, we help adam smith scholars on glasgow launch the yunus inspired journal of social business, and we helped yunus  challenge mainly black states university  presidents to celebrate their greatest (oops i mean community most caring as well as financially adept) young black entrepreneurs- there was supposed to be a grand finale  in atlanta in 2015 with black youth entrepreneurs across usa being celebrated by nobel peace lasureates

so i attended the 2013 laureate summit in warsaw where the redoutable lech walesa told his secrets of needing the moral support of pope john paul but where sadly gorbachev was not well  enough to speak- since then poland has caught some of the culturally dismal conflicts, the 2014 nobel peace laureate summit was moved from celebrating mandela because yunus could not accept south africa's refusal to give the dalai lama visit, and by 2015 those representing yunus  and the atlanta mayor quarreled over- so again the poor secretariat for the peace summit housed near the vatican in the same office of the green club of rome yet again had to move the summit

in those parts of the english speaking world where media is as fake as a PR lobbyist, its  all  very peculiar the gap between image making and reality making of human development -  its always local youth who lose when the great and the good fail to land an event that took many years to build- and which they  had started - but then got in the middle of canceling- it seems these days hard to help youth linkin to heroes of sustainability goals- but  i hope that the games of worldrecordjobs turn out to be ueful in spite of all of the above

as i no longer really trust what will happen in a weeks time, i try to help keep notes of summits on the world stage both vaut le voyage and which some superpowerful leader rips up after hundreds of years of prep by ordinary decent people


from recode daily
Jeff Bezos’s unorthodox approach to philanthropy. When the world’s richest man finally announced his $2 billion philanthropy fund after being notably absent for years from the world of serious charitable giving, he did something unusual: He gave $100 million each to two dozen homelessness nonprofits across the country, and then he let them do what they wanted with it. According to Recode’s interviews with eight of those funded by him and others familiar with his donations, Bezos wired the money with virtually no restrictions, formal vetting, or oversight. This stands in stark contrast to most other big-dollar donors, who tend to carefully review detailed proposals from charities before selecting them, place specific restrictions on how their money can be spent, and require thorough progress reports. Bezos isn’t doing any of that.
  • But is it a bad thing? Letting a nonprofit take your millions with limited oversight might sound like an irresponsible thing to do. But experts in the nonprofit world told Recode that Bezos’s strategy makes sense — with fewer restrictions and reports to fill out, charities can better focus on the work they have to do.

Organigram of guterres metahub of sustainability games

The job of uniting nations so that grandparents sustain their grandchildren & #DigitalCooperation out of every community by 2030 was always going to be politically difficult even if moores law application of trillion times more tech than needed to moon race sounded . Four years of europe's favorite fame mews brexit and us congresses favorite witch-hunt - hilary said donald said has disadvantaged everyone whose contribution to the human lot would ordinarily be and in the QueenEnglish

Thank goodness the UN is led by a Portuguese - who while loving his nation cant expect it to lead the world sustainability- well not untuil Brazil shows any sign of playing te supereconomy roile needed if those south of the equator to pull thier population weight as 10% of humans with quite a lot larger percentage of land and potenetially natural resources.

Our understanding is that Guterre\ was leading r5efugee work when the sdgs were launched- wghet5her he would have gone with 17 in terms of commubications mapping may be a moo0t point- what is not moot is he has done hsi vbest to find the suystems perosn within the UN or permenent frokends of SDG goals to be each sdg's economist while taking the connecting rile of goal 1 on as his overall moon race on earth, Note that goal 1 is also about the 300 trilion diooar fiaial gap and the lack of any process by which bankers not unly map sustainability infsratructire from noth to sorth but empower youth ceklebration at every new brdige, every new border win-wined. If ther5e i9s one thing we know about bidrers it is that6 when you bridge them mix up youth languages, arts, enetrepreur ecionomic zones. In other words a micro version of the one relevant idea of the eu to mix up the markets of geremany and frrances iron and steel so ther5e ws no need to war over these 2 then drivers of economics. Irinically jfk decalred a moon race even as the EU was breeding bureaucrats  like rabbits out of Brissels- so the EU wasnt designed to value any of the entrepreneurial p;ost industrial revolutions

Fortunatley Japan has carefully partnered giuterres in staging which nations can be presented as ai labs - open and reformative networks at the furst sdg summi9t he hiost september 2019- jim kim has also left washington to focus on bringing adfriac';s freedom of voice- whether any other nation kor suoercituy will satrt joiining in depends on the way the US election tear goes assuming congress has no legal foot to stand on other than maximise voting transparency

It shouldnt surprose us that if you look at who at the un shares educational flows on each goal - they come from all cirners of the earth- watch this space as we clarifu exactly how sept 2019's greatst yet celebration of humanity is compoered- how for example will new york supercity buildres like bllomberg and schwarzman stage manage the off camera and off tiwtter proceedings so that the world leaders on natiosn stay optimistoc that young peopels can yet unite in greatness they elders wuth a trillion tiens less \tech couldnt imagine and that the human brain with a trrillion times less numerical capaity than the Ai could only see as sci fi

If there is one thing we can assume as knwn about teh 2020s it is that sci fi is no more- anything imaginable for beter or worse is achievable if you linking enough koif 4 billion under 30 brains and all the new technolgies that human wit has built since ladig on the moon 50 yeas ago

The quadir family have been in the middle of village mobile revolutions for the poorest since 1996- that;s when iqbal quadir assembled a partnership:
between dr muhammad yunus and grameen in bangladesh
the norwegian mobile supplier telenor
the philanthropist george soros
-they acquired the first mobile license in bangladesh at cents in the dollar because experts had assumed there would be almost no market for mobiles in bangladesh

yunus distributed one village phone per 60 womens in village centres- she hired out the phone and also became a personal yellow page huib for services villagers might need
the rest of the company developed standard services for citizens
about one third of grameen phone was owned by yunus on behalf of hos village women members of grameen

over time the quadirs wanted to innovate different solutions to yunus- while iqbal built operation out of a unit at MIT sponsored by legatum in dubai, his brother designed the digital startup cell bazaar

they monitored other mobile services for the poor most notably mpesa in kenya and formed a partnership with nick hughes money for motion to develop digital banking for the poor where they moved over to brac as their village partner- the ventitre with brac called has become the largest cashless bank in the world with additional partners like bill an melinda gates and since summer 2018 jack ma

there are synergies in villages without electricity between mobile and microsolar - much of village asia especially in humid regions needs similar solutions replicated across communities- although bangladesh has never had large inward investors and is blocked off by neighbors with different faiths. since 1972 it has often turned lout to be a ;poverty lab which has innovated ultra solutions for women empowerment - the most miraculous end ;povertu development in china and bangladesh have learnt from each other -

Leading a meeting of Japan’s SDGs Promotion Headquarters, which is composed of the Prime Minister and all ministers, on 21 June 2019, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Japan has decided on three initiatives as the country’s detailed contributions to the SDGs:
  • Related to SDGs 11 (sustainable cities and communities) and SDG 13 (climate action), Japan will support Phase 2 of the Sendai Cooperation Initiative for DRR, extending support to at least five million people, in order to contribute to making the world more resilient and provide citizens around the world with peace of mind despite intensification of disasters;
  • Related to SDG 3 (good health and well-being), Japan will provide assistance to protect humans from infectious diseases, and will contribute to child vaccination; and
  • Related to SDG 4 (quality education), Japan will support access to quality education for children and young people in developing countries, including by promoting innovation, as part of its strategy to extend educational support to nine million people over three years.
In addition, Abe said Japan will advance initiatives on women’s empowerment (SDG 5), quality infrastructure (SDG 9), climate change (SDG 13) and marine plastic litter (SDG 14).
Abe said Japan will promote these initiatives at the G20 Osaka Summit, convening from 28-29 June 2019, and the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7). Japan is then expected to present the G20 Osaka Summit’s outcome on promoting the SDGs at the SDG Summit in September 2019.
During the G20 Ministerial Meeting on Energy Transitions and Global Environment for Sustainable Growth on 16 June 2019, in Karuizawa Town, Nagano Prefecture, Japan, the Ministers adopted the ‘G20 Implementation Framework for Actions on Marine Plastic Litter,’ committing to promote a comprehensive life-cycle approach to “urgently and effectively present and reduce plastic litter discharge to the oceans,” particularly from land-based sources. Abe had identified reducing marine plastic waste as a key priority for Japan’s G20 Presidency.

2. To further promote innovation in the digital economy, we support the sharing of good practices on effective policy and regulatory approaches and frameworks that are innovative as well as agile, flexible, and adapted to the digital era, including through the use of regulatory sandboxes. The responsible development and use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be a driving force to help advance the SDGs and to realize a sustainable and inclusive society. To foster public trust and confidence in AI technologies and fully realize their potential, we commit to a human-centered approach to AI, and welcome the non-binding G20 AI Principles, drawn from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Recommendation on AI. Further, we recognize the growing importance of promoting security in the digital economy and of addressing security gaps and vulnerabilities. We affirm the importance of protection of intellectual property. Along with the rapid expansion of emerging technologies including the Internet of Things (IoT), the value of an ongoing discussion on security in the digital economy is growing. We, as G20 members, affirm the need to further work on these urgent challenges. We reaffirm the importance of bridging the digital divide and fostering the adoption of digitalization among micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and all individuals, particularly vulnerable groups and also encourage networking and experience-sharing among cities for the development of smart cities.
Quality Infrastructure Investment
13. Infrastructure is a driver of economic growth and prosperity. We endorse the G20 Principles for Quality Infrastructure Investment as our common strategic direction and high aspiration. These emphasize that quality infrastructure is an essential part of the G20’s ongoing efforts to close the infrastructure gap, in accordance with the Roadmap to Infrastructure as an Asset Class. We stress the importance of maximizing the positive impact of infrastructure to achieve sustainable growth and development while preserving the sustainability of public finances, raising economic efficiency in view of life-cycle cost, integrating environmental and social considerations, including women’s economic empowerment, building resilience against natural disasters and other risks, and strengthening infrastructure governance. We look forward to continuing advancing the elements to develop infrastructure as an asset class, including by exploring possible indicators on quality infrastructure investment.

Global finance

14. We reaffirm our commitment to further strengthening the global financial safety net with a strong, quota-based, and adequately resourced International Monetary Fund (IMF) at its center. We remain committed to concluding the 15th General Review of Quotas no later than the 2019 Annual Meetings, and call on the IMF to expedite its work on IMF resources and governance reform as a matter of the highest priority. We support the progress made on work to follow up the Eminent Persons Group (EPG) proposals, including on country platforms, and efforts by the World Bank Group (WBG) to enhance risk insurance in development finance. We welcome the work undertaken by the international organizations on capital flows. The OECD has completed a review of its Code of Liberalization of Capital Movements. We will continue our work on the EPG’s proposals, recognizing their multi-year nature.
15. We reiterate the importance of joint efforts undertaken by both borrowers and creditors, official and private, to improve debt transparency and secure debt sustainability. We call on the IMF and WBG to continue their efforts to strengthen borrowers’ capacity in the areas of debt recording, monitoring, and reporting, debt management, public financial management, and domestic resource mobilization, including under their multi-pronged approach. In the context of the review of the Debt Limits Policy and Non-Concessional Borrowing Policy, we encourage the IMF and WBG to continue their efforts to deepen their analysis of collateralized financing practices. We welcome the completion of the voluntary self-assessment of the implementation of the G20 Operational Guidelines for Sustainable Financing and the IMF-WBG note on the survey results and policy recommendation. We applaud G20 and non-G20 members who completed the survey and call for continued discussion of the issues highlighted by this note, aiming to improve financing practices. We support the work of the Institute of International Finance on the Voluntary Principles for Debt Transparency to improve debt transparency and sustainability of private financing and look forward to follow up. We support the ongoing work of the Paris Club, as the principal international forum for restructuring official bilateral debt, towards the broader engagement of emerging creditors and welcome India associating voluntarily with the Paris Club to cooperate in its work on a case-by-case basis.

25. In order to achieve food security and improve nutrition for the growing world population, agricultural productivity needs to increase and distribution needs to be more efficient, including by reducing food loss and waste, in a way more compatible with the sustainable management of natural resources. To this end, we highlight the importance of access to and utilization of existing, new and advanced technologies, such as Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics among others, and encourage cross-sectoral collaboration among stakeholders. We also encourage innovation, skills training and lifelong education for all, in attracting new entrants and empowering youth and women in the agro-food sector. We recognize the importance of developing sustainable, science-based and resilient agro-food value chains, in an inclusive and equitable manner, including family farming and small scale farmers, which will also contribute to revitalizing rural areas. We emphasize the need for continued and enhanced information sharing and research collaboration to respond to existing and emerging animal and plant health issues. We will further encourage voluntary exchange of good practices and knowledge towards more sustainable agro-food sector.

Realizing an inclusive and sustainable world

26. With a view to the United Nations High Level Political Forum and High-level Dialogue on Financing for Development in September, we remain resolved to playing a leading role in contributing to the timely implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda. We recognize that international public and private finance for development as well as other innovative financing mechanisms, including blended finance, can play an important role in upscaling our collective efforts. Building on the G20’s Action Plan on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Osaka Update underscores the G20’s collective and concrete actions contributing to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and helping to ensure that “no one is left behind”. We welcome the Osaka Comprehensive Accountability Report.
27. We support developing countries in their efforts to advance progress towards the timely implementation of the SDGs in such areas as poverty eradication, quality infrastructure investment, gender equality, health, education, agriculture, environment, energy, and industrialization, using all means of implementation, such as the mobilization of private sector resources and capacity building assistance. We reiterate our continued support to the G20 Africa partnership, including the Compact with Africa (CwA), with strengthened bilateral engagement by G20 members and enhanced roles for WBG, African Development Bank, and IMF in implementing the CwA, and G20 initiative on supporting the industrialization of Africa and other relevant initiatives that contribute to the realization of the African vision as set out in the African Union’s Agenda 2063. We remain committed to address illicit financial flows and will take stock at future Summits.
28. We reaffirm our commitment to invest in human capital and promote inclusive and equitable quality education for all as emphasized in the G20 Initiative on Human Capital Investment for Sustainable Development. Recognizing the importance of science, technology and innovation (STI) for SDGs, we endorse the Guiding Principles for the Development of STI for SDGs Roadmaps. We recognize the importance of further efforts on North-South, South-South and triangular co-operation as well as disaster risk reduction including disaster risk financing and insurance schemes as a means to promote financial resilience against natural disasters.
29. We will continue our work towards achieving a successful 19th replenishment of the International Development Association, as well as a 15th replenishment of the African Development Fund. We call for full and timely implementation of the capital increase package of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the International Finance Corporation in view of their expanded roles.
Global Health
30. Health is a prerequisite for sustainable and inclusive economic growth. We recall our commitment to moving towards achieving universal health coverage according to national contexts and priorities. We look forward to the United Nations General Assembly High Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage (UHC). Primary health care including access to medicines, vaccination, nutrition, water and sanitation, health promotion and disease prevention is a cornerstone for advancing health and inclusion. We will strengthen health systems with a focus on quality including through enhancing health workforce and human resources for policy development and promoting public and private sector innovation, such as cost-effective and appropriate digital and other innovative technologies. Recognizing the importance of sustainable financing for health, we will call for greater collaboration between health and finance authorities in accordance with the G20 Shared Understanding on the Importance of UHC Financing in Developing Countries, to which our commitment was affirmed by our Finance and Health Ministers at their Joint Session. We encourage international organizations and all stakeholders to collaborate effectively and we look forward to the upcoming presentation of the global action plan for healthy lives and well-being for all.
