Why is it important to both plan and measure faith sensitive work?
Because by doing so, we can learn what works and what does not work when partnering with faith actors. We will then be able to act upon the findings and be better equipped to share the challenges and contributions of faith actors, or in the words of Mr. Guterres "to harness the full potential of the strengths faith actors bring to complement UN's approaches".
In the first section of this module you will learn to plan development programmes in a faith-sensitive way and gather evidence of the role of religion in development.The second section focuses specifically on faith-sensitive humanitarian response, based on research commissioned by Islamic Relief Worldwide and the Lutheran World Federation. Much of this second section can also be used for broader development programmes.
