The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), UNICEF and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) organized a design workshop for discussion on Phase II of the Global Programme to Accelerate Action to End Child Marriage, in Jaipur, India, 18–23 February 2019. This report is a summary of the presentations, panel discussions and group work by more than 100 participants in the workshop.

In preparation for the workshop, each of the UNFPA, UNICEF and UN Women country and regional teams responsible for the implementation of the Global Programme was asked to prepare a brief document on the main themes to be discussed: gender transformation, multi-sectoral approaches, scaling up, measuring outcomes, and the theory of change and results framework. Their work led to a series of commitments to action made by the country and regional offices of UNFPA, UNICEF and UN Women.
