ICRW and Girls Not Brides releases briefs designed to increase efforts to prevent and end child marriage
This month, ICRW, in partnership with Girls Not Brides, released 10 briefs that provide a short, accessible introduction to incorporating child marriage prevention and response efforts cross a range of sectors and programs. The briefs are useful for a variety of actors working in different sectors globally, including Health; Education; Democracy, Human Rights and Governance; Economic Growth and Workforce Development; Conflict and Crisis; Food Security and Nutrition; Agriculture, Energy and the Environment; Gender-based Violence; and Youth.
With a growing body of evidence demonstrating the connections between child marriage and a range of development priorities, from economic growth and poverty alleviation to health, human rights and social justice, we know that effective strategies to address child marriage require dedicated efforts, as well as cross-sectoral cooperation and integration. These briefs are designed to meet that need, identifying concrete ways in which child marriage prevention and response efforts can be tailored for programming within and across sectors.
