Islamic Perspectives on Sustainable Development This chapter is a sub-set of a wider global study that has the ultimate aim of establishing a platform for Muslim CSOs to share experience, knowledge and expertise so that they can meaningfully participate and bring their unique perspectives to the local, national and global arena where sustainable development policy and practice are at play. The purposes of this survey were to: 1. Understand the current levels of knowledge about Agenda 2030 and the SDGs, and capacity to engage, within Muslim CSOs in India. 2. Inform the development of a national and global Muslim CSO network to be known as the Muslim Platform for Sustainable Development (MPSD). The survey was designed by the Islamic Relief Academy as part of a global project to identify the capacity building needs of Muslim CSOs and create a shared platform for engaging with the United Nation’s programme on sustainable development through Agenda 2030 and the SDGs Office https://iracademy.org.uk Citation Dr Muhtari Aminu-Kano, Md Akmal Shareef (2016) Muslim Civil Society Organisations’ Engagement with the Sustainable Development Goals in India: Challenges and Opportunities in Islamic Perspectives on Sustainable Development (edited by Shereeza Mohamed Saniff and Raudha Md Ramli) Centre for Islamic Development Management Studies (ISDEV), Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) & Islamic Relief Academy, Birmingham, UK.
