The climate crisis is hitting those living in poverty the hardest. For millions of people across the world, extreme weather events mean losing their homes, food and livelihoods. This is not God’s plan.
Back in 2009, higher-income countries promised to give $100 billion a year from 2020 onwards to help climate-vulnerable nations adapt to the climate crisis and invest in a more sustainable future. They are yet to fulfil their promises. Now, it’s time to deliver.
That’s why we are calling on the UK Government to make best use of the remainder of its COP presidency, which runs until November 2022. We’re urging it to influence wealthier nations to deliver on their promises of finance for those suffering the worst effects of the climate crisis – a crisis these poorer nations did not cause.
Will you join us? The church and Christians all over the world can play a vital role in loving our global neighbours and speaking out for change. Sign our petition asking the UK Government to tell higher-income nations it's time to deliver.
