Organisation: UNICEF, UNHCR, ACTED, Save the Children, QUANDIL, Erbil Refugee Council (ERC), Un Ponte Per, International Rescue Committee (IRC) Year: 2016

This technical guidance aims to outline standard procedures to be undertaken in the identification of and intervention with all children under the age of 18 years that are (1) at risk of marriage, (2) engaged to be married, (3) who are already married and (4) pregnant girls.

It will be particularly useful to child protection and gender-based violence service providers working in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, in particular with refugees, internally displaced
populations and host communities.
