This week there is a conference in Copenhagen where scientists debate environmental challenges of the world.
Copenhagen Consensus is based on the aim to improve prioritization of limited means. The world is faced with a countless number of challenges such as diseases, environmental degradation, armed conflicts and financial instability. Copenhagen Consensus takes a new and critical-analytical approach to assessing the effects of international opportunities for solving the challenges.
Ten challenges representing some of the world’s biggest concerns have been identified. In Copenhagen, nine outstanding acknowledged economic experts will gather to discuss, analyze and rank the opportunities corresponding to each challenge. Ten specialists have each prepared a background paper on a challenge within their field of research in order to provide the experts with the best and most recent information.
