African Faith Leaders Meet In Addis To Deliberate On Climate Change
Church leaders from across Africa are meeting in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa to deliberate on the impact of climate change in Africa, and the need for the voices of the ecumenical community to be heard.
The two-day Roundtable, which starts today, has been organized by the All Africa Conference of Churches (AACC), and aims to have the voice of church leaders heard on this issue, and craft a position for churches during the forthcoming 26th Climate Change Conference of Partners (COP 26) in Glasgow in November 2021.
The Roundtable is expected to come up with a position paper on Climate Change by church leaders, including recommendations of what actions they can take within their congregations to mitigate its effects.
Among the speakers at the Roundtable include Rev. Dr Mwombeki, Dr. Albert Butare, chief executive officer of the Africa Service Energy Group, and Charles Ogilvie, Director of Strategy at the COP 26 Secretariat.
