    Nineteen of the 169 Sustainable Development Targets are so effective

    BENEFITS OF PRIORITIZING 19 SDG TARGETS

    that focusing on them first would effectively quadruple the aid budget without any extra spending

    Trying to achieve all 169 good, average,

    and poor Targets spreads resources thinly

    and dilutes benefits to about $2 trillion,

    Focusing on the most effective

    19 Targets has benefits equivalent

    to $10 trillion of social good.
