The world’s poorest people contribute the least but suffer the most from the climate crisis. Climate change impacts people’s health, ability to access nutritious food, and livelihoods.
WHY WE’RE WORKING ON THIS
- Defend the Planet
- The climate emergency is forcing people into poverty and destroying the lives of millions.
- If leaders act now – to keep fossil fuels in the ground and support climate-vulnerable communities – we can protect our planet for future generations.
Jesuits in Africa and their partners in mission are raising their voices with one clear message for those in power – we need climate action NOW!
Climate change is having a growing impact hitting the most vulnerable hardest, and contributing to food insecurity, population displacement, and stress on water resources.
