This short, self-paced course was developed by KAICIID and the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) with contributions from the National Muslim Council of Liberia (NMCL). Through their work, faith-based actors often make important contributions to achieving the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, in many cases, faith-based actors are unaware that their work contributes to this larger global agenda. Relatedly, governments and the United Nations are yet to fully understand the critical role that faith-based actors play in being agents of change in society, and in contributing to development at various levels. A common language is needed to bring these actors closer together. This course is developed to encourage and enable faith-based actors to explore how their current work links to the SDGs, and to make these links visible and more intentional. It is designed to promote the use of the SDG self-assessment tool developed as part of The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) ‘Waking the Giant’ initiative; to help broaden the evidence based on how faith-based actors around the world contribute to the specific goals and targets of the Agenda 2030. All course components are available now and can be completed at a time that is convenient for you (within a one-month period). Please note that this course is not facilitated by a course team leader. Any specific questions can be emailed to the KAICID DKH team at [email protected] or [email protected].
