This report explores issues confronting organizations working on international development in Southeast Asia that are, in different ways and to varying degrees, inspired by religious faith. Part of a global mapping of such work undertaken by the Luce/SFS Program on Religion and International Affairs, the survey provides strong evidence of the growing significance of faith dimensions and institutions in global development. This report was prepared as background for a consultation with practitioners in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, in December 2009. A report on that event was published separately.
