This programme document describes Phase II of the Global Programme to End Child Marriage, implemented by UNFPA and UNICEF. It articulates the content of Phase II, what the shifts are between Phases I and II of the Global Programme, and the comparative advantages of the two agencies.

The programme document is the cumulative result of investments made over more than a year by UNFPA and UNICEF to shape the next phase of the Global Programme. These investments include the evaluability assessment (2017), the Global Programme Joint Evaluation (2019), the review by UNICEF’s Office of Research Innocenti of 76 research reports produced by the Global Programme (2019), and the Phase II workshop held in Jaipur, India, in February 2019, which included key materials produced by country and regional offices in preparation for the workshop, as well as ongoing feedback provided by Global Programme donors and the Global Programme Partner Advisory Group over the first phase. The programme document comes alongside its Theory of Change and Results Framework.
