Ending Child Marriage: What Will It Take?


  
Abstract

This brief provides a broad overview of the causes and consequences of child marriage, potential strategies to delay the age of marriage and meet the needs of married children, and factors to consider when assessing where investment is needed and where change is most feasible. The authors would like to stress the importance of developing and implementing targeted strategies and interventions based on an analytical approach that includes an analysis of the context, gaps, and opportunities in specific national and sub-national settings to ensure that efforts in this area are designed, implemented and evaluated in the most impactful and effective way possible.
