Best Practice Papers 2009

In 2009, Best Practice Papers were commissioned based on the top solutions on the expert panel's ranked list from Copenhagen Consensus 2008. The aim was to provide a detailed cost-benefit analysis of the specific solutions, based on the existing challenge papers, but on a more specific level and In-depth, empirical, regional/national experience based. It was deemed essential that the BPP’s analysis deliver benefit-cost ratio for the solution and the quantity (i.e., how many people will this cover, how scalable is the intervention). 

The Best Practice Papers provide clear and focused empirical recommendations on the costs and benefits of implementing the solutions, and advice on how to do so. The papers are based on following six areas:

  • Micronutrient Supplements for Child Survival (Vitamin A and Zinc)  
  • Micronutrient Fortification (Iron and Salt Iodization)  
  • Deworming 
  • Biofortification 
  • Lowering the Price of Schooling 
  • The Economic Case for Expanding Vaccination 

This series is invaluable for donor governments, international organizations, NGOs and philanthropists.
