Call for submissions on CEFM in humanitarian settings

In its resolution A/HRC/res/35/16 adopted in 2017, the Human Rights Council had called upon all States, humanitarian actors, men and boys, and youth organizations to develop and implement responses, strategies and policies to prevent, respond to and eliminate child, early and forced marriage, including in humanitarian settings. Accordingly, the OHCHR has called for submissions stating any relevant information for the preparation of its oral update. The submissions may pertain to the nature and scope of child marriage in humanitarian settings, causes of CEFM in humanitarian settings, impact of CEFM on girls, individuals, and community, challenges, research, and data collection.
