Copenhagen Consensus 2008
The best solutions to 10 of the world's biggest challenges, Copenhagen, May, 2008
More than 55 international economists, including 4 Nobel Laureates, will assess more than 50 solutions and assemble a list of priorities for everyone involved in solving the world's biggest challenges.
The aim of CC08 is to take stock of the world's biggest problems and the most promising solutions and provide informed input into the policy making process surrounding efforts to deal with these problems. CC08 will revisit issues from CC04, as well as take up new issues in the light of improved knowledge of the state of the world since 2004. CC08 will provide an in-depth assessment of the costs and benefits of solutions to some of the biggest challenges the world is facing today.
