The event will bring together policymakers, government officials, UN experts, diverse faith leaders (including women and youth) from around the world to reflect and share their experiences on the interlinkages between FoRB and the SDGs, lessons learned, and gaps and future opportunities.


  • Showcase the significant role and impact which religious and traditional actors can leverage for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda SDGs and beyond by advancing FoRB through intra- and inter-faith peacebuilding work- including SDGs 5 (Gender), 7 (energy), 8 (economic growth), 10 (Inequality), 13 (climate action), 16 (peace, justice, and strong institutions), and 17 (multilateralism)
  • Hone and generate ideas for how addressing inequalities within and between religious communities (through intra- and inter-faith peacebuilding) can be systematized across the UN and other actors’ work to realize the SDGs and beyond
  • Bring together diverse high-level and grassroots actors to discuss localized solutions for religious and traditional actors to address critical issues and enhance partnership and advocacy with the UN at the local, regional, national, levels.
  • Propose explicit reference to FoRB in the post-2030 agenda, in order to squarely acknowledge the objectives above and recognise the multifaceted contribution this brings to the development agenda.
