w/ Bjørn Lomborg
Director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center
and Adjungeret professor at Copenhagen Business School
In two weeks, all leaders in the world will meet in New York to sign the global goals for the next 15 years. This follows the success of the Millennium Development Goals. Since these new targets can end up determining a large part of the period’s $2.5 trillion development aid, it is important we pick targets more effectively.
The Post-2015 Consensus is a project to determine which targets will deliver the most good per dollar spent. Dr Lomborg’s team has commissioned in-depth research and cost-benefit analyses on 22 diverse topics of development, ranging from education to gender and energy. Sixty teams of internationally renowned economists, including several Nobel Laureates, are taking into account not just the economic, but also health, social and environmental benefits to the world.
Dr Bjørn Lomborg researches the smartest ways to improve the environment and the world. His think tank has worked with over 300 of the world’s leading economists and 7 Nobel Laureates. He is one of TIME Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world. Lomborg has also been named one of Foreign Policy’s Top 100 Global Thinkers.
