The Sustainable Development Goals call for an end to child, early and forced marriage by 2030. From 2000 to 2020, child marriage decreased 15 percent, equating to approximately 25 million child marriages averted. Despite these gains, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, 100 million girls were at risk of being married before the age or 18 by 2030. COVID-19 has now put an additional 10 million more girls at risk of child marriage by 2030.
