Equalization

Equalization (Q) leverages factors like debt, population, investment indices, payment schemes and infrastructure financing, relating developing countries to advanced economies by means of a ratio that more equitably values our ecological data. Equalization (Q) is multiplied by the Impact Factor to produce V, the second component of the Monetary Equivalence Assessment (M∑)

Equalization considers that developing countries, indigenous peoples, poor peoples and impacted peoples are equally integrated into a global system and must have access and be afforded pathways for just, fair, and equitable development and infrastructure for our environment and economy to be sustainable.
