​This paper was prepared in advance of the 2012 Copenhagen Consensus, providing the rationale for investing in hunger and undernutritino as a smart and wortwhile investment, calling them "good economics". This paper shifts its focus from previous papers to include new solutions such as increasing global food production to lower food prices and to account for oncoming climate change that will undoubtedly affect the amount of food we produce globally. Three principal investments are proposed in this paper, which are prefaced by some background material, an explanation of how each of these investments addresses the problems of hunger and undernutrition - with the inclusion of costs and benefits, and caveats and cautions to keep in mind.
