From Peru to the Philippines, from Bangladesh to Brazil, our partners overseas tell us that they see increased floods, droughts and extreme weather harming the poorest people they work with. They’re urging CAFOD to stand with them against climate change. Yet the UK Government spends billions of pounds supporting dirty fossil fuels overseas that contribute to climate change. Inspired by our faith and love for our neighbours, we’re calling on our government to shift the balance towards renewable energy to lift people out of poverty and protect the Earth, our common home.
