The Global Priorities Project is currently not active
Members of the GPP team are currently working on projects within both the Future of Humanity Institute and the Centre for Effective Altruism, rather than on a joint project between the two. The FHI is taking the lead on existential risk related issues, while CEA is taking the lead on fundamental cause prioritisation research.

The government reallocated £2.5bn to fund research into treating and responding to the diseases that cause the most suffering rather than direct work. We had recommended this to policy-makers based on our primary and secondary research, and were one of several who made similar recommendations.
We bring together world-leading experts and policy-makers to improve coordination between workers on global catastrophic risks and have advised the UK government on its risk planning. This work is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland and the Future of Life Institute.
