Resource date: Nov 2020
Author: UNFPA, UNICEF
The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Global Programme to End Child Marriage works with many partners to advocate for and support practical actions to end child marriage and promote gender equality and the empowerment of adolescent girls.
The Global Programme assesses value for money for two main reasons: accountability to donors, and learning to inform management decisions. This technical note illustrates how value for money can be applied and measured in programmes to end child marriage. It builds on other technical notes from the Global Programme, including the notes on gender-transformative approaches, on scaling up efforts and on leaving no one behind. The note is evidence-based and informed by the promising practices of UNFPA, UNICEF and partner agencies.
