Author: Robert Henderson Organisation: Plan International, World Vision, The Royal Commonwealth Society, Girls Not Brides UK Year: 2016

Developed by World Vision UK and the Girls Not Brides UK National Partnership, this briefing identifies the progress that DFID (the British Department for International Development) and civil society organisations have made in ending child marriage since the 2014 Girl Summit, and the challenges they face in meeting the SDG target by 2030.
