The Luce/SFS project has focused on two principle components. A regional “mapping” project assessed the roles of faith-inspired actors on issues of global equity and development through a series of six regional workshops focused on the United States and Canada; the Muslim World; Europe and Africa; Latin America; Southeast Asia; and South and Central Asia. A second component focused on eight development issues surveys, consisting of expert consultations and issue reports on critical topics at the intersection of religion and economic and social development, including HIV/AIDS; gender; governance; shelter; malaria; tuberculosis; water; and maternal health.
The consultation agenda focused on accomplishments and results; key challenges and lessons learned; evaluation of successes (and shortfalls) in faith-inspired development programming; faith-inspired actors and the Millennium Development Goals; and next steps. Participants included key partners in the five year project, as well as organizations and experts looking towards next steps.
