GCF Climate Image

Yesterday, the U.S. State Department announced that it had provided an additional $500 million grant to support the Green Climate Fund (GCF). This brings the total U.S. contribution to the GCF to $1 billion—reinforcing our national commitment to challenging climate change. This latest decision came after thousands of Lutherans and other faith advocates voiced their support for the investment last year.

The Green Climate Fund is dedicated to protecting the most vulnerable among us from the impacts of climate change. It provides funding to foster developing nations’ efforts to adapt to a changing climate, and will help communities build technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As people of faith, we celebrate the additional funding that the U.S. will contribute to the GCF because it builds solidarity in our shared responsibility to care for creation.

More than ever, faith voices like yours continue to be instrumental in addressing climate change. Thank you for your advocacy action on this issue, and for your continued advocacy in 2017.
