6. GLOBAL CROSS-SYNTHESIS: 30 PROPOSALS FOR AN ALTERNATIVE WORLD MODEL

II. Constructing World Governance

03. Move towards a new system of procedures and institutions for world government. (08.01.)

04. World governance requires common foundations:
a) common objectives: sustainable development, reduction of inequalities, peace;
b) a common ethical basis: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Charter of Human Responsibilities.
These are the foundations on which it is possible to define the areas of ac-tion by the international community, since the hierarchy of norms and stan-dards apply to every area (trade, the environment, health, security, etc.), and to the great world causes in which both states and multilateral institu-tions must co-operate. (04.06.)

III. Promoting Globally Sustainable Development

05. A global regulation of Principles of protection for the eco-system, hu-manity, the moderation of consumption, precaution, protection of diversity, citizenship, minimising pollution emissions, co-operation, “polluter-payer”, not only at the microeconomic level but also at the level of States and conti-nental organisations, making sure that this principle is not denatured as a benefit from a licence to pollute. The image of “global citizenship” can help to contribute to correcting the imbalance between capital and labour at the global level; that which must anchor populations to their region of origin must not be the legal impossibility to emigrate, but the completely sustain-able development of their place of origin. (08.04.)
06. Water is an indefeasible right for every human being.
Water is an asset common to man.
Water is also a social and economic asset.
Any governance of the water supply must contain a social section as nobody should be deprived of water due to their inability to pay for it. (15.01.)

07. Create openness in national financial systems and abolish tax havens. Private institutions must adhere to an international charter that defines the responsibilities of international loan organisations. (08.08.)

08. Actions must be defined to oppose the monopolistic offensive, supported by the major nations through patents, which at the same time appropriate popular knowledge in function of economic interests and attempt to impose their rights to patent knowledge and goods which constitute the social heri-tage. (08.09.)

09. Establish a tax on international financial transactions in order to stabilise monetary transactions, to contribute to the financing of sustainable devel-opment and in order to eliminate poverty. Create importation taxes targeted against social and ecological dumping. (08.11.)

10. The actors of Fair Trade must start to take into account a precise analy-sis of the effects of production modes and international exchange on the en-vironment, when clarifying their criteria.
This will allow them to be credible in the framework of the search for sus-tainable development. They must participate along side environmentalist or-ganisations in the efforts for the internalisation of environmental and social costs and the setting up of a Multilateral Accord on the Environment. (09.07.)
