The International Partnership on Religion and Sustainable Development (PaRD) is a unique and dynamic global multi-stakeholder partnership. PaRD brings together religious and other civil society organisations, intergovernmental and governmental entities and academia. It focuses on the positive potentials and contributions of religious actors to the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda. PaRD enables collaboration on a long-term basis at equal levels.
Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources
Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reserve land degradation, halt biodiversity loss
Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
PaRD provides a unique opportunity for members of several governments to regularly discuss the importance of faith in development and find ways to take action for common cause when it comes to the challenges of our day. Due to its international nature, it is a topic that affects every country and its programming. I am grateful to PaRD for making these essential connections a consistent part of our work.
Governments alone don’t have the capacity to cope with those pandemics. On behalf of the people of South Africa, I would like to thank the religious community for the overwhelming support at every level as we navigated our way through the devastating storm of COVID-19.

Development will not happen until we go back to the roots of what is holding back women in development and attaining economic independence.

PaRD provides a unique space: It allows faith-based organisations, governments and intergovernmental organisations to directly connect with each other. PaRD enables to learn about the positive potential of religion, and explore creative ways to tackle our common global challenges.

Compassion, healing and unity is at the heart of spirituality – and to transcend man-made boundaries. To strengthen this positive force on a global level through collaboration between state actors and civil society, helps to commonly contribute to sustainable solutions for our wellbeing – and that of the Earth.
What PaRD has that is its strength right now, is the ability to bring together donor governments from the North with Faith-Based organizations (FBOs). PaRD needs to enable something catalytic, multireligious and multinational that’s transformative for people and lives!
