Laudato Si’ Week: Appeal for Climate Change Victims

As the International Migration Review Forum (IMFR) gets underway, the leadership of the global confederation of Catholic relief agencies, Caritas Internationalis (CI), is calling on the international community to grant a special protection status to people and communities displaced due to climate change.

In a Tuesday, May 17 report, the CI Secretary General said that the entity is pushing for legal protection for “people and communities displaced due to climate change” and favorable conditions for people “to stay where they live”.
