LET'S GO DIGITAL! Using Digital Technology to End Child, Early and Forced Marriage and Reduce Adolescent Pregnancy

Added by Plan International Asia-Pacific Regional Hub |  26 April 2021

This report examines the role that digital technologies and online solutions can play in ending child, early and forced marriage (CEFM) in the Asia-Pacific region. Based on an in-depth literature review and key informant interviews, it explores the ways in which Plan International Asia-Pacific Regional Hub (APAC) and other child-rights based development organisations have integrated digital technologies in their programmatic and influencing approaches towards eliminating CEFM in the region. It also introduces some of the digital technologies that have been developed by the private sector, which can be effective in CEFM prevention. Drawing on these insights, the report develops a series of recommendations about how digital technologies can be leveraged most effectively to reach scale and generate impact in eradicating CEFM.

The final section of this report provides an overview of how Plan International is contributing to the elimination of CEFM in the Asia-Pacific region more broadly. It describes in detail the Time to Act! regional platform and programmatic and influencing approaches driving these efforts, and outlines some of the organisation’s work in ten countries where CEFM elimination efforts are underway.
