This online platform collects and communicates information related to religious actors responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, organizing information so that it can be quickly found and used by development policymakers and practitioners and religious actors who seek to work together in the COVID-19 response. The platform works (a) to link actors and observers focused on religious response and a broader policy community; and (b) to center attention on the most vulnerable communities (refugee communities, for example). As a living repository it is updated on a regular basis; a weekly email (sign up here) highlights important additions. Jointly managed by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University, the Joint Learning Initiative, and World Faiths Development Dialogue, the platform emerged out of the March 2020 "Consultation on COVID-19: Exploring Faith Dimensions."
