Intersection of Financing, Ethics, Human Rights and Climate Justice: Vital Role of Faith Actors – All Africa Conference of Churches & Christian Aid
This panel event will critically examine the nexus of financing, human rights, and climate justice, from a faith and ethics perspective. During the event, we’ll be asking important questions about the role of faith actors in mobilizing communities and advocating on climate justice issues. Our panel will be comprised of faith leaders, policy experts and negotiators, with expertise and experience advocating on climate justice and finance. We’ll ask speakers to reflect on how their spiritual beliefs has motivated their own climate advocacy. We plan to invite a negotiator or Government representative to offer their reflections on important role of faith actors.
