Act now: Reduce the impact of COVID-19 on the cost of achieving SDG 4


There is a US$148 billion annual financing gap in low- and lower-middle-income countries to achieve SDG 4 from now until 2030. Additional costs due to COVID-19 related school closures risk increasing this financing gap by up to one-third, or US$30 to US$45 billion. But investing now in remedial and re‑enrolment programmes could reduce this additional cost by as much as 75%.
