A joint work of the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith & Local Communities and the PaRD work-stream on SDG 16: peace, justice and strong institutions

The International Partnership on Religion and Sustainable Development (PaRD) brings together governmental and intergovernmental entities with civil society organizations, such as religious and value-driven organizations, to harness the positive impact of religion and values in sustainable development and humanitarian assistance. One of PaRD’s focus areas is Sustainable Development Goal 16 on peace and justice.
PaRD’s SDG 16 workstream commissioned the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith and Local Communities (JLI), an international collaboration focused on building and communicating the evidence base on the roles of religions in sustainable development, to conduct this scoping study on partnerships with local faith actors (LFAs) for peaceful and inclusive societies.
