The study shows an upward trend of total budget allocations for ending child marriage in the period between 2010 and 2016, and maps key government interventions that potentially contribute towards ending child marriage. Social safety net programmes, adolescent health, and opportunities for secondary education for girls comprise most of the investments, whereas comparatively less budget has been allocated for protection against gender-based violence, and community awareness interventions.
