- How do the faith identities of local communities in India and Ethiopia impact upon FBOs’ global programming?
- How does the global language of SDGs get connected to local religious and cultural conditions?
- To what extent and in what ways do faith actors in the UK engage with the SDGs?
- How are international FBOs focussing on domestic programming in the UK around the SDGs?
