The International Hub

for the Management of Sustainable Development Projects

 

 

DESCRIPTION OF THE MODEL

 

 

According to the Monterrey Consensus of the UN International Conference on Financing for Development (Monterrey, Mexico, 18-22 March 2002), "global society has the means and is endowed with the resources to address the challenges of sustainable development confronting all humanity." At that "to achieve the goals of sustainable development, we need more effective, democratic and accountable international and multilateral institutions to improve international coordination for sustainable development and mobilizing national and international resources."

 

Such organizations should integrate social, economic and environmental strategies within inclusive sustainable development projects.

 

 

1. "New Form" of International Cooperation

 

The "new form" of international cooperation, which expands economic models on the basis of exogenous formats and anthropogenic management mechanisms, is the creation of a basic institution for the management of sustainable development projects The International Hub.

 

The basis for the project is the ratification of the Intergovernmental Agreement to Establish the International Hub for the Management of Sustainable Development Projects (hereinafter – Agreement).

 

The project is a system of global cooperation for the achievement of 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the development of democracy.

 

The project involves attracting international support from governments, foundations, academic and research institutions, as well as intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, private investors and scientists for realization of international projects in member countries of the Agreement and the countries participating in the Hab’s projects.

 

The project provides two tasks: 1) providing development based on the deployment of a platform to stimulate new activities; 2) solving current problems based on exogenous management formats that extend economic models in line with the growing complexity of processes.

 

 

2. Model

 

The model of New Form of international cooperation includes:

1)     draft Agreement, which forms organizational and legal aspects for the institutionalization of new (digital) economic entities;

2)     the beta version of the digital future-line platform, which provides mechanisms for the technological implementation of new business forms.

 

The draft Agreement meets the requirements of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (1969).

 

The digital future-line platform is based on ontological model, cybernetic digital intelligence and Web-autoformalization of processes.

 

The Agreement and the digital future-line platform together form an ontology for expanding the economic and legal space, creating conditions for the implementation of sustainable development projects.

 

 

3. Model functions

 

The model creates a platform for the establishment of institutional rights of ownership in the Internet, as well as generates new forms that ensure the development of the Digital Economy and the deployment of management models for multi-dimensional relationship (based on exogenous formats and Web-autoformalization).

 

From the practice of large-scale experimental exploitation, the model functions include:

 

1) Digital means of production. Digital means of production, provided by the model, are a set of services that have digital identification and provide the opportunity to work with any information, to build any relationship in the digital space and to ensure Web-auto-formalization of processes, depending on the individual perceptions and abilities of the user.

 

2) Digital institutions. Digital services of the Model allow to create any structured and informationally filled Web-auto-formalized forms (which act as objects of ownership) of new digital institutions: from digital jobs to digital executive and legislative authorities. Digital services also form a systems of limitations (digital frameworks) that provide technological support for management and decision-making systems.

 

3) Digital rights. The legal potential of the model is provided by the draft Agreement.

 

 

4. Legal aspects

         

Legal grounds for drafting the Agreement are the international acts of the United Nations: the Monterrey Consensus of the UN International Conference on Financing for Development (Monterrey, Mexico, 18-22 March 2002), the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation of the World Summit on Sustainable Development (Johannesburg, South Africa, August 26 - September 4, 2002), Doha Declaration on Financing for Development (Doha, Qatar, 29 November - 2 December 2008), the decisions of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development "Rio+20: The future we want" (20-22 June 2012, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), the Addis Ababa Action Agenda of the Third International Conference on Financing for Development (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 13-16 July 2015), the UN General Assembly Summit on 25-27 September 2015 "Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development".

 

 

5. Funding

        

Funding the International Hub and sustainable development projects can be done through the UN; UN sustainable development Forum; European Neighbourhood Fund (ENBF) as well as corporate and private investments.

 

Financing is carried out by the Council of Corporate Investors on the basis of international fund raising campaigns.

 

The International Hub is established as a highly profitable international organization involving member states, business and science.

 

Economic justification for transition to the Digital Economy (e-commerce, e-customs, e-administration) was defined by the Action Plan 2016-2017 of the Eastern Partnership Panel on Harmonization of Digital Markets, reflecting the Declaration adopted at the first Eastern Partnership Ministerial on Digital Economy, in July 2015.

 

 

6. The position of the concerned bodies

 

The draft Agreement in accordance with international requirements is approved at a conference held among potential participating countries and is provided to authorized persons from the governments of the countries interested in implementing sustainable development projects.

 

The conference was held on June 8, 2017. The resolution is given separately

 

 

7. Regional aspects and national sovereignty

 

The International Hub supports a digital future-line platform that enables governments to independently deploy national governance models based on cultural and national values. This ensures the effective implementation of sustainable development projects and the attraction of the necessary resources, as well as reinforces state sovereignty in the context of globalization.

 

Thus, the exogenous format of the International Hub, eliminating the dialectical contradiction between globalization and national law, not only does not limit national sovereignty, but also motivates competition between states, national business and the population to participate in sustainable development projects.

 

 

8. Prevention of discrimination

 

The draft Agreement does not have provisions that contain elements of discrimination. Public anti-discrimination expertise is not required, because the project is the base platform for other projects that will be agreed by public organizations of countries where the projects will be implemented.

 

 

9. Preventing corruption

 

The draft Agreement does not have rules and procedures, which may include risks of corruption offenses. Public anti-corruption expertise is not required.

 

 

10. Public discussion

 

The draft Agreement will be posted on the official websites.

 

 

11. The position of the social partners

 

The draft Agreement allows to expand social and labor sphere, the rights of the disabled and socially vulnerable groups (students, pensioners) through the development of digital entrepreneurship, individual industrialization, new economic activity and new professions.

 


 


 

12. Regulatory Impact Assessment

 

The draft Agreement is not a regulatory act because it does not contain provisions that are regulatory in nature.

 

 

13. The impact on the labor market

 

Implementation of the Agreement will positively affect the employment market, as it provides the creation of new and preservation of existing jobs by implementation of sustainable development projects. Also average monthly salaries in sustainable development projects are expected higher than industry averages in the European Union.

 

 

14. Forecast of the results

 

Implementation of the Agreement will ensure the implementation of 17 Sustainable Development Goals, attract investments in the countries, create a massive jobs of a new quality, and provide an international counteraction both external and internal challenges.
