A Listening Dialogue is the first step in a process of creating regionally/nationally-rooted and locally-led joint learning networks for advancing research and evidence on the roles of religions in humanitarianism, development, and peacebuilding. It provides shared space for a dialogue about experiences of developing and using evidence from the perspective of those who are directly involved in efforts to transform communities, specifically local and regional (faith) actors.
The Kenya Country Listening dialogue was a physical meeting held on the 11th of March, 2022 from 9:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m at the Mash Park Hotel, Nairobi- Kenya. It brought together members from NGOs, FBOs and independent practioners who have been, and continue to work development programmes towards peace.
The ultimate aim was to identify what evidence exists and what additional evidence is needed. Furthermore, the Listening Dialogue was to enable make decisions about how evidence should be used in the region to influence policies and good practice.
