CIDSE first reaction to HLPE report on agroecology

Wednesday, 03 July 2019 15:20

Today, the High-Level Panel of Experts (HLPE) of the UN Committee on world Food Security (CFS) is launching its report on “Agroecological approaches and other innovations for sustainable agriculture and food systems that enhance food security and nutrition”. This report will be discussed at the October CFS plenary session and should lead to the adoption of recommendations in October 2020. This comes at a crucial time as agroecology is clearly gaining ground at the international level; FAO and IPBES have both recently highlighted the high potential of agroecology to achieve respectively the Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Agreement and the Convention on Biological Diversity. CIDSE has long been fighting for agroecology to be fully acknowledged and supported by governments. In this regard, the HLPE’s publication adds to the wealth of reports, studies and initiatives calling for agroecology to be put on the political agenda.

To live Laudato Si’ the Church must respond to the cries of the Amazon

Saturday, 04 May 2019 16:32

Two decades ago as a young university student, I had the opportunity to study in the Amazon region in and around Ecuador’s Yasuní National Park. The experience of seeing such incredible biodiversity juxtaposed with the environmental and social consequences of oil exploitation changed my life.
The Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns partners with the Pan-Amazon Ecclesial Network (REPAM) to protect this region. REPAM is a network and partnership between communities in the Amazon and the Catholic Church. Together, they strive to protect indigenous territories, cultures, and livelihoods from powerful forces such as large-scale development projects.

In October 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published a special report highlighting the increased urgency of limiting global warming to below 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Switching to sustainable and efficient energy systems globally is crucial to achieving the 2015 Paris Agreement signed by the EU and other 194 countries.
