Tebabu (CCTV)   can I rehearse a line of thinking before Meskela's visit to DC on behalf of hundreds of thousands of ethiopian small farmers of Aromia grassroots network
I think we all need to ask you to ask him one question first- does he have a list of bottom-up coop organisers who are as motivated and connected as he is in different countries and crops
If he does have that list then the blessed "virtuous exchange value chain remodelling" question is which of those crops either have a social value- no crop has more simple community building value than coffee's cafe or a health value which is either underknown (firstly by a targetable niche of us opinion leaders) or processed out by the big producers
the puddle and kiva and student patient capital question in usa is: in developing the import market among us customers is there a franchise that you can say to community regenerating youth or women  borrow 500 dollars and you get these permissions and this product stock and if you make the most of that social and financially you can double up with puddle loan and franchise permission (whats also called the ladder concept of microcredit that jamii bora built orphan banking around)
the digital flow question is : can some combination of nanocredit, telecentres, grameen-intel  EAGRI etc be pivotal to linking in your most trusted associates the 100 million bottom-up agri-producers multinational; paul polak asks a different question - what will be the top 20 bottom up multinationals serving 100 million customers form bottom of pyramid but actually the open and mobile technologies naila links can be exciting small business to business producer techs
the banking and currency question is- why dont you have your own agricultural and cashless bank given the  sustained intergenerational increase in productivity of the livelihoods of the families you represent is what your trust is all about - and this is the only dynamic capital , currency and safe banking can ever be exponentially designed around
the yazmi, media labs, nearly free uni and open learning architect's question which also connects with questions sir fazle abed and taddy blecher can uniquely design open learning campuses around  is what or who do youth from eg meskela families need to know so they are in the middle of agriculture's next billion jobs or as millennials designing their nation's sustainability so that rural and city win-win from the rural viewpoint; also all of these questions are ones young professionals need the new open society bottom-up system maps of -what sometimes I think sir fazle abed has a unique competence for as the only poverty alleviation networker to have graduated in engineering, architecture and chartered accountancy
the infastructure (roads and other public commons questions) which pape's networks know about is how do you design these to end poverty not just to make the biggest bigger -ending poverty and inequality while still sustaining intergenerational growth of your nation
there's a parallel energy/waste question which eg sainsbury family in london is teaming up with infosys leader nilekani on
I am sure there are under 35s and women and opentech empowerment people brighter than me in morphing and blending these partnership questions to more accurately represent such open tech gamechangers as what bottom-up telecentre, kiva-puddle, grameen-intel, other micro-processes can empower
BUT AM I CORRECT the first question is a mapping one:  how many analagous networks to  Aromia-coop exist and which leaders of these does Meskela know?

we should never forget that good news in agriculture is the most cheering news in the world- this chart from my father's 1977 survey in The Economist supported his survey of China as the growth nation that all millennials need to celebrate in collkaborating with any win-wins they can search out

x This week carries an interesting update on Grameen Intel's goal of helping Cambodia become the next rice basket to the world

where do you search for news that links sustainability, ending rural poverty, nutrition and crop productivity?

i would love to hear your views -

i'm no expert but historically I search alumni out Borlaug and Nippon Institute, I trust good news from BRAC, Grameen Intel and IFAD; I listen to diaspora networks (such as those hunted out by and young professionals on Jim Kim's 2030now mission

Grameen-YukiGuniMaitake Social Business is a joint venture between Grameen Krishi Foundation, Bangladesh, YukiGuni Maitake Ltd, Japan and Kyushu University, Japan with further support from Japan's JICA and JETRO. The aim of this venture is high quality mung bean and export them to Japan, generate extra income for the farmers, promote long term friendship with Japan in terms of agriculture. Launched with 8000 Bangladeshi farmers- expected to scale to far more once systems have been fine tuned

A second crop is expected to be a kind of Sprout Japanese value most for nutrition, Currently Japan imports these sorts of highly nutritious vegetables from China and a little from Myanmar- why not Bangladesh too? more at

Don't you just love economics and media?


freeing poultry market. Sir Fazle ABED observed that a 1970s Bangladeshi villager couldnt earn a living with the number of eggs the scrawny village chicken used to lay. So BRAC bred a super chicken that lays many times more eggs. But because it does more work the superchicken needs vet attention. Count up the 5 job descriptions that redesign the value chain of the whole poultry market in bangladesh:
breeding superchicks
vetting superchicks
villagers laying eggs with superchicks
now that villages have surplus eggs retaining them to cities
producing chicken feed from land not able to support human crops

BRAC is Bangladesh's leader of poultry market. It cooperatively frees the market not by taking profit from the village workers every quarter but my maximising income generation across all 5 microfranchise jobs described above. That's employment for over 100000 previously-poorest people that the "chicken microfinance plus bank "mediates and economically sustains. A microcurrency of a bank that is increasing productivity of all ist members sustainably provides a model of safest banking in the world that brac shares with association of like-minded bank leaders

G5 nothing is too big to share universally>>> IOT which things will now have brains and be as mobile connectyed as you are

Cyber >> Drone - opportunities and threats of public spaces being 100% public - good and bad hacs- note context matters - context 1 smart city context 2 isolated vilalge no moore context 3 make a huge land safe at borders
