Editorial Reviews


Praise for the Copenhagen Consensus 2004-2013: 'I have served on four Copenhagen Consensus committees of experts since 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, Distinguished University Professor Emeritus of Economics, University of Maryland, and Nobel Laureate in Economics

Praise for the Copenhagen Consensus 2004-2013: 'The Copenhagen Consensus brings together an impressive roster of minds, and while not everyone agrees with the composition and ordering of Lomborg's priorities lists - climate change tends to rank lower than many stakeholders would like, for example - as a point of departure for discussion, the exercise of priority-setting is a sound one.' Tom Zeller, Jr, The Huffington Post

Praise for the Copenhagen Consensus 2004-2013: '[The] Copenhagen Consensus is an outstanding, visionary idea and deserves global coverage.' The Economist

Praise for the Copenhagen Consensus 2004-2013: 'The selection of zinc supplements by the Copenhagen Consensus as the top global remedy for hunger and malnutrition was one of the main drivers for our $3 million initiative 'Zinc Saves Kids' with UNICEF. We are now expanding this effort to help the 450,000 kids at risk of dying every year, working with the United Nations Foundation, the Gates Foundation and others.' Stephen R. Wilkinson, Executive Director, International Zinc Association

Praise for the Copenhagen Consensus 2004-2013: 'One of the greatest leadership skills discussed in the Global Leadership Forum in Washington DC (October 2012) was the Copenhagen Consensus simulation. This activity was very important because it gave us the opportunity to work together on a key leadership skill: building consensus around difficult issues.' Naglaa Hassab, Humphrey Fellow, MBA student in Economic Development, Finance and Banking, Egypt

Book Description

Bjørn Lomborg invites more than 50 expert authors to decide how best to spend a hypothetical $75 billion of aid money to combat twelve major global problems. This thought-provoking book challenges readers to form their own opinions and prioritize: resources are limited and some solutions are smarter than others.
