UNICEF UNFPA - Phase 2 of Global Program to Accelerate Action to Child Marriage

November 1, 2018

Child Frontiers will facilitate the review process and supported the process for development of key documentation for Phase II of the UNFPA-UNICEF Global Program to Accelerate Action to End Child Marriage, which offers a framework promoting the right of girls to delay marriage, addressing the conditions that keep the practice in place, and caring for girls already in union. The program focuses on enabling girls at risk of child marriage to choose and direct their own futures, supporting households in demonstrating positive attitudes towards adolescent girls, and strengthening the systems that deliver services to adolescent girls. It also seeks to ensure laws and policies protect and promote adolescent girls' rights, and highlight the importance of using robust data to inform policies relating to adolescent girls. This review will culminate in a workshop in Jaipur, India, in February 2019, with key stakeholders.
