“If I had an hour to solve a problem I'd spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.”
- Albert Einstein
Einstein got an excellent reputation for being mostly right, so we do not see why we should disagree with him. However, before thinking about the problem and asking for the right questions, we need to agree on which ones we have. That's why we maintain this list, whose content come from a wide range of sources, including the UN, the WEF, NGOs, traditional media outlets and social media platforms. We hope that you find it useful, because we could not find it before.
What is the most important problem in the world? This important question has raised several different answers, without global agreement. We thought it was important to create an "objective way" of ordering the world most compelling problems by their negative impact. For doing so we use an algorithm that we update continuously. It is publicly available under GNU LGPLv3, we hope you can contribute to its improvement.
Our ambition is to make the most reliable and transparent way of calculating the impact of each problem. We are aware that this work and its result will never be perfect, however we are convinced that it is better to have something perfectible rather than not, if it can be useful.
