CEARCH conducts cause prioritization research and outreach - identifying the most important problems in the world and directing resources towards solving them, so as to maximize global welfare.

CURRENT OR PREDICTED IMPACT:

  • CEARCH's own internal cost-effectiveness analysis suggests that we might, in expectation, save more than 3 million DALYs on a perpetual value basis, by redirecting EA funding to causes far more effective at improving welfare.

  • That said, such estimates should not be taken literally, given the high amount of uncertainty involved.

SIGNIFICANT UPDATES: 

  • As of 1st November 2022, CEARCH has (a) compiled an initial longlist of 150+ potential causes; (b) finalized their research methodology and published three shallow research reports (on nuclear war, fungal diseases and asteroid impacts); and (c) are in ongoing discussions with various EA and non-EA organizations to use their future research.
