About the FID Monitor
The factor "faith" receives too little attention in global development cooperation despite the fact that human development is inseparably interwoven with worldview. The societies and cultures in which development projects are implemented are deeply influenced by religion. At the same time, religious organizations are among the oldest and most influential actors in global and local development cooperation. The Faith in Development Monitor contributes to (1) illustrating the relevance of religion for international development cooperation, (2) increasing religious literacy among practitioners and policymakers, and (3) comprehensively explaining current developments in the field of "religion and development".
Under the slogan "500 seconds for more faith in development", the free Faith in Development Monitor is published every two months in English.
