About JLI

An international collaboration on evidence for faith actors’ activities, contributions, and challenges to achieving humanitarian and development goals. Founded in 2012, JLI came together with a single shared conviction: there is an urgent need to build our collective understanding, through evidence, of faith actors in humanitarianism and development.

JLI was privileged to attend the PaRD mid-term meeting. See agenda here

PaRD announced the launch of three new platforms: Health, Gender Equality and Religion and Sustaining Peace.

More information on Gender Equality and Religion Platform

Building on the recognition established at the 60th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW60) of the role of faith-based organizations (FBOs) in addressing the needs of women and girls – especially those facing multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination and marginalization –at CSW 61, PaRD launched a global Platform on “Gender Equality and Religion”, hosted at the Canadian Permanent Mission to the United Nations.

This platform aims to bring together religious and traditional leaders, leaders of faith based and civil society organisations, as well as gender and development experts to unpack how achieving gender equality can be pursued from within a religious lens.

UN Women, on behalf of the UN’s Interagency Task Force for Religion and Development (UNFPA/UNIATF), together with UK-Aid/ DFID and the International Partnership for Religion and Sustainable Development (PaRD) collaborated on this seminal new initiative.
