Foundation, Priorities & Principles

The SDGs set the foundation of PaRD’s work. With the SDGs, 193 countries have set 17 goals to ensure a better life for all, end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure peace and well-being for everyone. PaRD currently concentrates on Health (SDG 3), Gender Equality (SDG 5), Environment, Water and Climate Action (SDGs 6, 13, 14, 15), Sustaining Peace (SDG 16) and Food Security (SDG 2). The basis of PaRD are the fundamental principles of human rights as well as freedom of thought, conscience, religion and belief (FoRB), as both are preconditions for sustainable development. 

Through PaRD’s workstreams and taskforces, members and interested partners collaborate and gather evidence about the positive role of faith actors in sustainable development. Together, concepts are created for conferences, seminars, guidelines, briefing materials, and learning resources.

Interested parties can find more information about PaRD in our official flyer and in PaRD’s strategic plan 2022-2026.
