                As floods devastate Eastern Africa, Catholic leaders in the region express hope for tangible climate actions at COP28. Against the backdrop of climate activists in South Africa advocating for climate justice and an end to fossil fuels, church leaders emphasize the urgent need for decisive measures to address the climate crisis. The link between extreme weather events, like the floods in Eastern Africa, and the broader call for concrete actions at COP28 highlights the critical role of international cooperation in mitigating the impacts of climate change and safeguarding vulnerable communities.
