This briefing paper by BALIKA outlines how girls can be empowered to delay child marriage in Bangladesh.Programs that elevate girls’ visibility and status in their families and communities, and build their skills and knowledge, have been shown to delay child marriage in different parts of the world. However, in Bangladesh, where efforts to prevent early marriage have focused on the enforcement of laws and policies, little research exists on what approaches work best to delay child marriage and why.
