World Humanitarian Summit
JOINT LEARNING INITIATIVE
Religious Engagement at the World Humanitarian Summit
What is the evidence for the contributions of religious engagement and local faith communities in humanitarian assistance? What needs to be done next?
JLIF&LC compiled the evidence and produced five Evidence Briefs, structured according to the five Core Responsibilities outlined in the UN Secretary General’s Report One Humanity, Shared Responsibility. The Evidence Briefs & Key Messages, as well as supporting resources, are located here on JLIF&LC’s WHS Online Information Platform.
The five Evidence Briefs were featured in the WHS Side Event “One Humanity, Shared Responsibilities: Evidence for Religious Groups’ Contributions to Humanitarian Response.” The Peace & Conflict Learning Hub Scoping Paper was also launched at the Side Event. View information about Side Event.
Side Event Co-Organizers: the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith & Local Communities, Soka Gakkai International, ADRRN, Islamic Relief Worldwide, Malteser International, Religions for Peace, World Evangelical Alliance, and World Vision. Resources in support of speakers’ remarks are linked below.
