Being a least developed country with limited capacities and financial resources, Ethiopia faces tremendous challenges in filling the development gaps and achieving the broad scope of SDGs with 169 targets and more than 230 indicators. Priority setting is therefore indispensable which can help use limited resources effectively by addressing the accelerators and mitigating the trade-offs. This country study, funded by UNDESA, aims to provide a new insight on priority setting from an interlinkage perspective to complement the existing priority setting practiced in Ethiopia under its Second Growth and Development Plan (2015/16-2019/20) and support integrated planning and implementation of SDGs.
