Worldsheet formulations of quantum field theories have had wide-ranging impact on the study of scattering amplitudes. However, the mathematical framework becomes very challenging on the higher-genus worldsheets required to describe loop effects. I will describe how, in such worldsheet models based on the scattering equations, formulae on higher-genus surfaces can be transformed to ones on the Riemann sphere. My talk will focus on new developments at two loops for both supergravity and super Yang-Mills theory, and briefly discuss a proposal for the all-loop integrand.
