Copenhagen Consensus 2012: Assessment Paper on Population Growth

In 2012, the Copenhagen Consensus Center’s flagship project, Copenhagen Consensus 2012 provided an answer to the question: If we had an extra $75 billion to put to good use, which problems would we solve first? This was more than just an intellectual exercise; it was a way to identify the areas of spending where the most good could be achieved, and attention brought more to these areas. It was also a way of identifying areas where there isn’t enough research, or where the benefits are not as big as assumed. The project, a culmination of 18 months of planning, research-writing and preparation, builds on the success of two past Copenhagen Consensus projects: Copenhagen Consensus 2004 and Copenhagen Consensus 2008.
