South and Central Asia

As part of its global mapping of faith-inspired organizations in development work sponsored by the Luce/SFS Program on Religion and International Affairs, the Berkley Center and the World Faiths Development Dialogue held a consultation and developed publications and web resources focused on relief and development organizations based in South and Central Asia. The consultation, co-sponsored in Bangladesh by BRAC University's BRAC Development Institute (BDI), was held in January 2011 in Bangladesh, and convened scholars and practitioners for a two-day long discussion on the role of faith-inspired practitioners and organizations on issues of global development and equity in South and Central Asia. Consultation outcomes will lead to the publication of reports outlining critical actors, best practices, and ways forward.
