Workshop on Global Development and Religion in Tanzania
July 31, 2018
On July 31, 2018, the World Faiths Development Dialogue (WFDD) convened a workshop in Washington, D.C. to discuss planned research on the intersection of development and religion in Tanzania. It was part of WFDD’s ongoing PaRD (International Partnership for Religion and Sustainable Development)-supported research program to explore these issues in five countries (the first was Nigeria). The consultation drew on a review of existing material on both Tanzania’s development strategies and on the religious landscape. It involved a small group of primarily development practitioners who brought diverse experience and perspectives on Tanzania and had focused in various contexts on the intersection between development work and religious actors. This note provides a short summary of consultation discussions, organized by the central development issues.
