The World Faiths Development Dialogue

The World Faiths Development Dialogue (WFDD) works to build bridges between the worlds of faith and secular development. Established at the initiative of James D. Wolfensohn, then President of the World Bank, and Lord Carey of Clifton, then Archbishop of Canterbury, WFDD responds to the opportunities and concerns of many faith leaders who have seen untapped potential for partnerships. Based in Washington, DC, WFDD supports dialogue, fosters communities of practice, and promotes understanding on religion and development, with formal relationships with the World Bank, Georgetown University, and other secular and faith-inspired institutions.
