This does not mean that we stop these programmes altogether, but rather that we complement them with programmes that ensure their sustainability. But, because the fundamental question that guides our theory and strategy focuses on poverty alleviation, these interventions toilets, free universal education by themselves seem reasonable.
However, by asking a different question, development practitioners can derive entirely new theories that will ultimately lead to a very different development strategy. The eradication of poverty is not the same as the creation of prosperity. Development practitioners should focus on the latter.
Simply owning a toilet, even when it is used, does not equate to living a prosperous life. The theory that poverty is a resource problem cannot answer both questions. In fact, creating prosperity is a process problem, not a resource problem.

A process is the way people use their resources. Same resource, different processes, different impact. In order to create prosperity, development practitioners and programmes such as the SDGs must focus on fostering processes. This focus on processes leads to developing innovations that people can pull into their lives to help them make progress. Consider how the Kenyan mobile money platform M-Pesa came to dominate cash transfers in the country. In Kenya, it took more than years to establish a network of 1, bank branches and 1, ATMs. But soon after M-Pesa was released, the process of money transactions in Kenya changed drastically.
More than 19 million Kenyans pulled M-Pesa into their lives because it was a significantly better way for them to transact. If the founders of M-Pesa had framed the problem in Kenya as a resource problem, they would have built significantly more banks and ATMs. This would have had less impact on mobile money transactions in Kenya.
Unfortunately, many of the SDGs are pushing resources anchored in the wrong question. Instead of pushing many of the SDGs, what might it look like if the UN actually set up an innovation group that developed products, such as M-Pesa, that people could pull into their lives? The UN Global Pulse Labs is an interesting attempt, but the initiative is still too focused and prioritises what experts determine are the needs as opposed to entrepreneurs.
What might happen if the SDGs, and the whole development community stopped treating development as a resource problem and began treating it as the process problem it is.

And most importantly, how might the development community be transformed if we simply asked — how can we best create prosperity in poor countries? Follow EfosaOjomo on Twitter. Join our community of development professionals and humanitarians.
