The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are not achievable using the prevailing paradigm of donors, intermediaries, and industrial-era proprietary technologies and costs.

The SDG goals can be achieved at a one-time cost per person of $500 if the United Nations (UN) will embrace Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE) as the central method.

OSEE includes nine major categories – four are known to the UN (Open Data, Open Decision-Support, Open Governance, Open Software), five are largely ignored and their potential not understood (Open Health, Open Infrastructure, Open Manufacturing, Open Provisioning, Open Space).

An Open Source (Technologies) Agency funded at $2 billion a year by the USA, has been proposed to Vice President Joe Biden and pre-approved in principle by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) contingent on VP request or Secretary of Defense (SecDef) approval as part of the D3 Innovation Initiative (D3: defense, diplomacy, development).

A direct inquiry from and engagement by the Secretary General in the very near term could yield an advance on SDG accomplishment unimagined by anyone else.

This briefing brings together twenty-two graphics with accompanying text, representing forty years work drawing on the minds of thousands of others. Put bluntly: we can achieve peace and prosperity for all at one tenth the cost of what we are now paying for war and poverty benefiting only the 1% — the elites considering all of us unrepentent deplorables — farm animals and feral beasts of no account.

The final page points to a free online copy of my Memorandum to Vice President Joe Biden, and a free online copy of my Nordic Manifesto, along with other supporting documents.
