On 5th – 8th October 2020, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) hosted an Evidence Summit on Strategic Religious Engagement. The aim of the Summit was to bring together USAID staff, members of the research community, and development practitioners to examine the findings of high-quality, evidence-based research that address the role of religious community engagement and faith-based organizations in global development, and implications for USAID policy and practice.

Side by Side member, Jørgen Thomsen (DanChurchAid / ACT Alliance) was awarded the opportunity to present in this prestigious and influential space. We were delighted that he chose to focus on Side by Side and share learnings on growing a faith movement for gender justice. The following are the key points shared in this space:

Jørgen also shared in this space, the transformative work that our members and national chapters are achieving. For example:

Side by Side are honoured to work with our members and movement to further evidence the power of strategic religious engagement for gender justice. We are currently developing with our members a new agile Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning framework to promote shared learnings, adapt and strengthen our theory of change. While also continuing to collaborate with strategic research partners, for example the Joint learning Initiative and the International Partnership on Religion and Development (PaRD) and look forward to publishing a new report later this month.
