Quality livelihood worldwide
HR&S claims that honest and fair collaboration between non-OECD and OECD countries is necessary for quality livelihood worldwide. Such collaboration enables:
Cross-cultural innovation: Cross-cultural collaboration provides opportunities of recombining existing ideas. Combining ideas that have not been connected before creates a potential to produce something new and useful.
Empowering talents and promoting excellence in non-OECD countries: Researchers in non-OECD countries presents important research findings, innovators create amazing solutions and entrepreneurs are eager to start successful businesses, but their findings, innovations and efforts are often un-recognised and unsupported.
Increased social enterprising: Social enterprising enables a sustainable economy and also leads to innovation, and thus smart solutions for livelihood improvement.
Transforming traditional development aid to mutual benefit collaboration: HR&S claims that traditional development aid is not as helpful, as once believed, and that aid is not, and was never, pure altruism. Thus it is preferred to make it clear that both sides must benefit, and HR&S transforms the traditional development aid to mutual benefit collaboration.
Extreme poverty eradication: The 2016 World Bank “Africa poverty report” informs that the number of poor people is higher Africa than in 1990, two in five adults are illiterate, and violence is on the rise.
Prevention of poverty forced migration: Migration driven by a processes of development and social transformation can be assumed to have increased international development and the migrants capabilities. In case the migration was driven by poverty those positive results may not have been seen.
Cross-cultural learning: Learning through engagement with difference, discovering opportunities for development by comparing and contrasting beliefs, values, and cultures, is essential to global development. A global citizenship in harmony and equity enables cultural strengths to be transferred to also other cultures.
