The Joint Learning Initiative on Faith & Local Communities (JLIF&LC) worked collaboratively with its members and other partners worldwide to collate and review the evidence on local faith communities (LFCs) and religious engagement in humanitarian response. The resulting evidence briefs follow the five core commitments from the UN Secretary General’s report “One Humanity, Shared Responsibility.” The briefs contain key messages and actions that provide evidence-based insight into LFCs and religious engagement in humanitarian response for the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) and beyond.
