The Post-2015 Consensus

The CCC's newest project asks, "How can we make the world a better place over the next 15 years?"

The Post-2015 Consensus brings together the world’s top economists, NGOs, international agencies and businesses to identify the best “bang-for-buck” goals for the UN's next development agenda.

Real People, Real Problems

The Copenhagen Consensus Center interviewed more than 50 people, all around the world. Our goal was to ask them about their priorities and concerns, and then consider the policy options that would help the most. Too seldom do we hear from the local people who are said to be in danger. These people are not voiceless; we just pay no attention to what they say.

A lot to learn

“I've served on four 'experts committees', beginning in 2004.  All involved hard choices among attractive alternatives to meet crucial objectives for development and health. And the reason I keep serving? I learn so much.”  

- Thomas C. Schelling, Nobel Laureate in Economics
