EU-CORD is pleased to announce that we have been accepted as a member of PaRD: International Partnership on Religion and Sustainable Development.
More than 80% of the global population affiliates with a religion. Religious values and beliefs influence the thoughts and actions of billions of people. Religious actors contribute daily and significantly to sustainable development around the world. Their unique global and local networks reach into the most remote corners of the world.
PaRD brings together governmental and intergovernmental entities with diverse civil society organisations (CSOs) and faith-based organisations (FBOs), to engage the social capital and capacities vested in diverse faith communities for sustainable development and humanitarian assistance in the spirit of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
