Rose Garden of the United Nations


Faith-inspired and faith-sensitive work can be an underlying link between the SDGs and we plan to clearly show how our work and networks are already supporting the 2030 agenda effectively, while outlining clearly how further integration and partnership development can accelerate progress through SDG 17.

Why faith actors are critical to achieving the 2030 Agenda Side Event 3:30 – 4:30 pm

Organized by Islamic Relief Worldwide, with support from PaRD

By coming together at the SDG Action Zone, timed to coincide with the 74th United Nations General Assembly, the panel discussion will show how faith actors can support the global development agenda, and the UN, to deliver results, despite ever shrinking resources.

Join the panel to hear about how religion should no longer be used as a cover for persistent inequalities but must become a powerful tool to combat the underlying causes of inequality such as health disparity, gender injustice, refugee protection, conflict prevention and climate justice. JLI President Jean Duff will speak on the Panel about SDG Goal 13 Climate Action: The ability of faith to motivate people and change behaviour.
