Copenhagen Consensus

The Copenhagen Consensus brings together an expert panel of world-leading economists to address 10 major challenges for the world of tomorrow:

– Climate Change
– Communicable Diseases
– Armed Conflicts
– Education
– Financial Instability
– Governance and Corruption
– Malnutrition and Hunger
– Population and Migration
– Sanitation and Water
– Subsidies and Trade Barriers

The Economist has a report on what are the recommendations on the panel of economists:

Ranked first was a package of measures aimed at controlling HIV/AIDS. Next came a set of interventions aimed at fighting malnutrition. The third-ranked policy did raise a few eyebrows, among economists and NGO sceptics alike: multilateral and unilateral action to reduce trade barriers and eliminate agricultural subsidies. In fourth place were new measures to control malaria.
