Get clued up: Climate
The people who suffer most as a result of a changing climate and who have the fewest resources to cope, are those who have done least to cause the problem. It’s simply not fair.
We believe creation is God’s gift for all people, and humanity has a special responsibility to care for it. Our vision is a world where everyone can enjoy a healthy environment and benefit from their fair share of the earth's wealth and resources.
As part of the Stop Climate Chaos coalition, CAFOD is campaigning for:
- UK and world leaders to tackle the root of the problem by agreeing a global deal to cut carbon emissions at the United Nations
- long-term support and finance for poorer countries - not only to protect people from the impacts of climate change, but also to help their countries develop in a greener, more sustainable way.
Tens of thousands of you have spoken out for climate justice since we started campaigning in 2008. You’ve shown decision-makers the strength of public feeling and pushed them to commit to action.
But tackling climate change demands far-reaching and urgent action. We need to call on our government to continue to take a lead at international meetings and to carry out the emissions cuts promised at home.
