Abstract and Keywords

Discussion of faith, religion, and development often raises controversy, including over terminology. This chapter considers the various formal dialogues among development practitioners and faith-inspired actors, recounting the history and assessing future prospects. Ignoring or mismanaging the dialogue is likely to be costly for development, especially in some of the poorest parts of the world where faith and religion are particularly important.
