On February 12th -13th, 2019 the conference will be held in London, UK at the School of Oriental and African Studies. It is the fourth and final event of a research network called "Keeping Faith in 2030: Religions and the SDGs" - funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council in the UK.
In recent years development agencies and donors in the West have begun to recognise the role of religions in their work and are now increasingly funding faith based organisations (FBOs)and projects that include religious actors. This corresponds to growing academic research on religion and development, and a wider interest in the role of religion in the public sphere.
The conference aims to enhance international exchange about the role of religions in defining, implementing, and safeguarding "sustainable development", as codified in the UN "Sustainable Development Goals" (SDGs). The conference will begin with an overview and discussion of the findings of the "Keeping Faith in 2030" project.
