Reducing disaster risk

The United Nations COP26 conference in November will hold governments to account for reducing the emissions that contribute to global warming. Whatever the outcome, it’s clear that we must prepare to respond to the consequences of climate change that are already in motion – whether we manage to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees or not.   

Jubilee Centre's new Cambridge Paper is on reducing the risk of environmental disasters, in the context of climate change increasing the intensity and impact of those disaster events.

The Facing the Climate Crisis event will begin with a presentation of the paper by its author, Amy Donovan, and will be followed by two or three short responses from a panel, opening up the discussion to some wider implications.

Since the debate on climate change is often polarised and charged with blame and accusation, the panel will seek to model a  generous conversation where marked differences of opinion are encountered between them. It is vital to change the culture of public discourse if we are to find common ground - and to work together to address some of the most pressing challenges facing the world this century.

Facing the Climate Crisis will inspire Christians as individuals, citizens and stakeholders to find ways to transcend differences and work together with faith, hope and love to respond to the looming consequences of climate change.
