Online Information Platform for WHS Side Event by JLIF&LC, SGI, and partners:

The Joint Learning Initiative on Faith & Local Communities (JLIF&LC) has worked collaboratively with its members and other partners worldwide to collate and review the evidence on local faith communities (LFCs) and religious engagement in humanitarian response. The resulting evidence briefs follow the five core commitments from the UN Secretary General’s report “One Humanity, Shared Responsibility.” The briefs contain key messages and actions that provide evidence-based insight into LFCs and religious engagement in humanitarian response for the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) and beyond.

JLIF&LC has created an online information platform in support of the WHS Side Event that it is hosting alongside Soka Gakkai International, Asian Disaster Reduction and Response Network, Islamic Relief, Malteser International, Religions for Peace, World Evangelical Alliance, and World Vision. The side event “One Humanity, Shared Responsibilities: Evidence for Religious Groups’ Contributions to Humanitarian Response” will spotlight the key messages from the evidence briefs. The full evidence briefs and supporting in-depth resources can be found at the online information platform:

In addition to the JLIF&LC-hosted side event, the evidence briefs will be presented and referenced at other events at the World Humanitarian Summit focusing on religious engagement in humanitarian response. More information about these WHS events is available at:
