This paper focuses on inclusivity of religious minorities and religious diversity in humanitarian response. Questions on inclusion of religious diversity will usually arise during assessment, monitoring, and evaluation of humanitarian response but are relevant to any and all stages of the humanitarian programme cycle.

The authors find that there are a lack of questions tailored for humanitarians to use throughout the programme cycle that will help them analyse when and how to pay specific attention to religious diversity in their response.

This paper suggests some recommended questions emerging from the reviews of guidance documents and tools.

The paper was jointly published by the Joint Learning Initiative and the IDS-led Coalition for Religious Equality and Inclusive Development (CREID).
