a simple question fast burn people forget to ask

How do we classify thematic project areas of humanitarian endeavour? Am I correct in assuming there is no standard of the same sort that industry statistics are broken down into several hundred sectors and perhaps 30 mega-groupings? If so, can the development of the project30000 catalogue offer an independent bonus?: permitting any worldwide concern network to crosscheck how its project applications areas mix and match with another network's development foci.?

Where would we look to see which project application areas subnetworks are convening around. Ashoka now has about 15 identified group interests which its 2000 social entrepreneurs identify with one or more of. You can start to see what that list is at www.changemakers.net . Its not complete but if it interested enough people here, I am confident I could get Ashoka to tell us what they have so far identified. As well as effectively cataloguing theory 2000 entrepreneurs by application interest, knowledge of how grassroots up sustainability in any particular context application area involves different intelligences than those who have only mapped how do you do eg health from top-down's standard ways of classifying is being developed and at www.changemakers.net this is shared wherever you come across the keyword mosaic.

The smart commons mosaic for water is a particular favourite of mine but perhaps because a few years ago some of us came up with the pair of questions: is there an atlas of the world with red spots wherever there are water problems and how many different legend codes would be needed to catalogue every type of redspot problem. Although water could be taught as the mother of all geographic systems, we find no evidence that such a map exists in a simple way to navigate round, and we find too many top down experts have different vocabularies which to the layman overlap but which the experts seem unable to transparently translate into profiling what project is first needed where.

WE might ask who's classifications could be useful and whether anyone is doing it as an open atlas representing that humanitarian approach to change the world

-are microfinanciers working towards an agreed project classification listings
-are the largest philanthropies from GatesF down 1
-do open space and conflict resolution facilitators have a checklist of what project areas recur as most prominent t in the practice of peace
-how do mosaic applications areas get listed by any change the world method you may find most convincing to advocate that civil society knows of http://www.omidyar.net/group/community-general/news/1368/
-how does this match with the way the world social forum classifies its members activity foci http://www.omidyar.net/group/community-general/news/1376/
-globalisation's exponential risk profiles http://exponentials.blogspot.com : if we listed the 25 biggest global market sectors and each one's most risky externality or potential loss of sustainability, how would we map the solution project themes people will need to unite round if we are not to go past extinction’s tipping point on one inconvenient truth or another?

think of the 2 biggest networks or virtual communities you feel a part of; can you top 10 their members' actual project activity areas; if you or we could , would that be one way forward in getting humanitarian networks to better understand mutually advantageous collaboration areas

does our classification list match with what future historians and entreprenurial revolutionaries monitor as being the greatest innovation opportunities and risks of being in that first generation to try to trasform to the higher order (cross-cultural) system, as we boldly go from local to global in every choice of relationship connection we trust to maing?
