‘Decision-makers should be selecting interventions that optimise outcomes across the whole set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This requires economic models that project long-term costs, benefits and risks of intervention options. There is also a need to assess trade-offs and returns to investment and this requires expressing the relative value of different aims in monetary terms.’
