CWN Editor's Note: Participants in the general assembly of Caritas Internationalis, the Church’s confederation of relief and development agencies, said in their final statement that they “recognize the magnitude of the threat of climate change and ecological crises, in particular in Amazonia and in the Congo basin. We shared our concern and outrage over the massive forced displacement of people, the growing social and economic inequality, bad governance and corruption, populism and polarization, political and religious persecution, and the proliferation of conflicts.”
