Knot Ready: Lessons from India on Delaying Marriage for Girls


  
Abstract

  The Knot Ready study was conducted in India from 2005 through 2008. ICRW researchers analyzed child marriage trends in the sub-continent over the past 15 years and assessed the effectiveness of programs and policies aimed at delaying marriage. The project identified legislation and 58 policy and program interventions to delay age at marriage in India from 1961 through 2005. Among these, the project identified 10 governmental and nongovernmental interventions with the explicit objective of delaying age at marriage. Researchers conducted in-depth field assessments of eight interventions and a detailed document-based assessment of the other two.
