6. Accelerating Uganda’s Development: Ending Child Marriage, Educating Girls, The World Bank Group, 2017.

This Economic Update highlights the economic costs of child marriage, early childbearing and low educational attainment for girls. It argues that educating girls, ending child marriage and preventing early childbearing is essential for girls to have agency, not only as future wives and mothers, but also as a productive workforce that contributes to the development of the country. Specifically, lowering population growth, the fertility rate, and the dependency ratio, will raise the productivity of the labor force, hence offering an opportunity to accelerate economic growth. Even more fundamentally, girls marrying, having children, or dropping out of school early are disempowered in ways that deprive them of their basic rights.
