Child Marriage in Cote d’Ivoire

The law in Côte d’Ivoire forbids any customary or religious marriage of children under 18 years old. However, 33% of girls are married by 18 and 10% by 15.

Despite early progress in reducing the rate of child marriage in Côte d’Ivoire, in recent years this progress has virtually stalled. If current trends continue, the rate of child marriage could still be 30% in 2030.

This brief outlines child marriage trends and projections, current progress, barriers to its elimination, and recommendations in accelerating progress.
