The National Costed Roadmap to End Child Marriage and Female Genital Mutilation/ Cutting (FGM/C) (National Roadmap) 2020- 2024 is an evidence-based costed plan which outlines the key strategies, packages of interventions, and expected results, targets and milestones towards the elimination of child marriage and FGM/C in Ethiopia. The National Roadmap applies across all contexts in Ethiopia, including in humanitarian and emergency situations which may exacerbate risks of child marriage and FGM/C for girls, reduce access to protective services, and have cross-border dimensions.

The National Roadmap has passed through a rigorous process of critical reflection and consolidation building on lessons from interventions to-date, and existing evidence. From its inception, the National Roadmap underwent different stages of consultation with stakeholders, especially with regional states and sectoral institutions, ensuring ownership of the resulting interventions and costings.
