Disclaimer: Owing to its nature as an international partnership bringing together governmental and intergovernmental entities with diverse Civil Society Organizations (CSOs)/ Faith-based Organizations (FBOs), PaRD does not endorse specific policies or advocate for the adoption of policies by government or international organizations. Rather, PaRD dedicates itself to creating a neutral space for all its members to discuss development goals, review evidence-based research, share best practices, and develop independent policy recommendations, with the aim of fostering partnership between government and faith-based organizations, while respecting the unique identity and positions of all members. For this reason, research, publications, or policy recommendations published by either individual or collaborative organizational members of PaRD, represent solely the opinions of the authors and the independent organizations they represent. Such publications do not reflect, nor are intended to reflect, the views of PaRD, its leadership team, the full body of its members, nor any consensus of members within the PaRD network.
