Food Security and Climate change

1 0mGao WvWPtqpAO6hBG6nQClimate change is an issue of justice and protection of life. Climate change impacts disproportionally the marginalised communities and people in Africa. JASCNET proposes Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si' as a helpful framework to understand and act on issues of climate justice.

In this ground-breaking encyclical, Pope Francis notes that climate change is not only an environmental problem, but also a humanitarian and development emergency of global proportions, which affects the world's poorest and most vulnerable people. We, as people of faith, can respond to the challenge of environmental segregation. In response to the call of the Pope, JASCNET accompanies local farmers in promoting sustainable methods of agriculture and other initiatives to enhance resilience. We also advocate for more effective and socially just international agreements to tackle climate change.
