The Joint Learning Initiative on Faith and Local Communities is a knowledge partner with the International Partnership on Religion and Sustainable Development/PaRD workstreams to conduct research on partnerships/collaboration between religious/faith actors, NGOs, governmental, and inter-governmental agencies on peace justice and strong institutions (SDG 16).
The first stage of the PaRD SDG 16 Workstream research project is to collect and share good practices and models of violence prevention and peacebuilding processes in which religious and traditional actors have been involved in SDG 16. The JLI research will focus on partnerships between faith actors, NGOs, governmental, and inter-governmental agencies and in the following countries:
- Africa: Niger, Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, and Central African Republic
- Asia: Myanmar, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka
This should only take 5 minutes to complete and will allow us to follow-up with you or your suggested partner organizations to conduct the research interviews and build the case studies. The research is expected to be completed by July, with initial results communicated at the PaRD Annual Meeting in May.
