FREE LECTURE: The Smartest Targets for the World
|The Smartest Targets for the World : Public lecture with Bjorn Lomborg
The UN, with its 2015-2030 process, is going to set the global goals for the next 15 years in September, following the success of the Millennium Development Goals. Since these could end up determining a large part of the periods $2.5 trillion development aid, it is important we pick targets more effectively.
The Post-2015 Consensus is a project to determine which targets will deliver the most good per dollar spent. Dr Lomborgs team has commissioned in-depth research and cost-benefit analyses on 22 diverse topics of development, ranging from education to gender and energy. Sixty teams of internationally renowned economists, including several Nobel Laureates, are taking into account not just the economic, but also health, social and environmental benefits to the world.
Dr Bjorn Lomborg researches the smartest ways to improve the environment and the world. His top-ranked think tank works with over 100 economists including 7 Nobel Laureates. He is one of TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world, one of the 75 most influential people of the 21st century according to Esquire magazine, and one of the 50 people who could save the planet according to the UK Guardian. Lomborg has repeatedly been named one of Foreign Policys Top 100 Global Thinkers.
