United Nations Inter-Agency Task Force on Religion, Strategic Retreat with Faith Based and Values Based Organization Partners

 

 

Over 40 senior level directors  of the faith-based partners of the United Nations from the Arab region, South Asia, Europe, and the the United States, representing most world faith traditions/religions participated in the retreat. 15 United Nations agencies - members of the UN Task Force on Religion - also attended. The retreat was a follow up to the United Nations Donor-UN-FBO (DUF) Policy Roundtable in May 2015, which was, then, in preparation for the the post-2015 Development Agenda (now known as the Sustainable Development Goals) or Agenda 2030.  The retreat was a great success in that the participants were able to strategize together for continued realization of the SDGs, in their capacity as the faith-based partners of the United Nations system.
