The Copenhagen Consensus Center is a think tank that researches the smartest solutions for the world's biggest problems, advising policy-makers and philanthropists how to spend their money most effectively.
That’s where you can make the greatest difference, where every dollar you spend is liable to have the greatest impact."- Bill Gates
We are solutions-oriented, and our approach improves knowledge and gives an overview of research and facts within a given problem, which means that the prioritization is based on evidence. We host forums in which the topics are debated and a final consensus is reached.
In particular we focus on the international community's effort to solve the world's biggest challenges and on how to do this in the most cost-efficient manner.
We create a framework in which solutions to the world's big problems are prioritized explicitly, with the goal of achieving the most 'good' for people and the planet.
We work with governments, NGOs and multilateral organizations on projects around the world.
