Globalisation makes the tackling of the environment and social issues a lot more challenging:
Much of the problems occur across widely spread geographical areas, and a wide range of different agencies share information in differing ways. In many cases, there is a strict need to protect the confidentiality of informants and support personnel from both criminal and commercial interests.
Tackling these pernicious challenges requires the development of a system for information exchange that can cross boundaries, accept information from a wide range of sources while preserving confidentiality.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution; only a distributed network of systems and solutions created by a global network of supporters working together around the world can meet these challenges.
