The FCBCO release statement on climate change

The Federation of Catholic Bishops Conferences Oceania (FCBCO) recently released a statement on climate changed to be delivered to the COP21 meeting in Paris 2015.

Heartened by the growing international concern about climate change and global warming, governments and international bodies are taking up the united cry of citizens to implement and monitor outcome focused policies to reduce practices and choices that impact negatively on the environment and thus on our peoples.

The FCBCO are particularly concerned about rising sea levels, ocean acidification and unusual rainfall patterns. The Federation is committed to encouraging our own people, civic leaders included, to do their part to foster sustainable and equitable developmental and economic policies in our region.
