EU-CORD, ACT Alliance EU, Caritas Europa and Islamic Relief Worldwide have collaborated on a practical toolkit designed to give European Union (EU) decision-makers and civil society actors concrete suggestions for more systematic engagement with local religious leaders and faith communities in humanitarian response, development and peacebuilding actions. Increasingly, we recognise the centrality of working in partnership to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. This includes the need to engage with those who can help us to understand religious dynamics in countries where faith and belief inform a worldview that shapes laws, customs and practices.
This toolkit is just a start, and we look forward to taking the conversation and the toolkit forward with interested parties.
