What is the evidence for the contributions of religious engagement and local faith communities in humanitarian assistance? What needs to be done next?
JLIF&LC compiled the evidence and produced five Evidence Briefs, structured according to the five Core Responsibilities outlined in the UN Secretary General’s Report One Humanity, Shared Responsibility. The Evidence Briefs & Key Messages, as well as supporting resources, are located here on JLIF&LC’s WHS Online Information Platform.
The five Evidence Briefs were featured in the WHS Side Event “One Humanity, Shared Responsibilities: Evidence for Religious Groups’ Contributions to Humanitarian Response.” The Peace & Conflict Learning Hub Scoping Paper was also launched at the Side Event. View information about Side Event.
Side Event Co-Organizers: the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith & Local Communities, Soka Gakkai International, ADRRN, Islamic Relief Worldwide, Malteser International, Religions for Peace, World Evangelical Alliance, and World Vision. Resources in support of speakers’ remarks are linked below.
