CWN Editor's Note: The message, signed by Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin, refers both to ecological issues and to the "interior desertification rooted in our failure to love God and neighbor." The conference is the 13th follow-up meeting of signatories of this 1994 UN anti-desertification agreement (background). The United States and over 190 other nations are parties to the agreement.
