Laudato Si- Mercy Western Province Leading on Climate Justice
Mercy Western Province have partnered with Vita, the Irish charity fighting hunger and climate change in Africa, to achieve climate justice for women and families in Ethiopia and Eritrea. They are inviting partners to invest with them in the Vita Green Impact Fund which will generate a return for investors as well as new funds for development projects through the voluntary carbon market. This smart and innovative funding mechanism is sustainable on three levels; it provides sustainable energy and water for vulnerable families, it is sustainable for the planet in mitigating climate change and it generates enduring finance for development. The fund is a shift away from traditional grant – driven models of aid. It is a next-generation model of development for the Catholic Church to protect the integrity of creation and fight for social and economic justice for the world’s poorest people.
