Tackling Problems Upstream

The world is in a climate crisis. Our broken relationship with creation has led to the abuse of natural resources, rampant pollution, and changing weather patterns.

The poor are most affected; they do not hesitate to tell us how their lives have become harder as a result.

As Christians, God has called us to steward and take care of the environment. Yet many of us deny this call, have genuine questions, or don’t know where to start.

Here you find many resources talking about creation care from a Biblical standpoint and how you can bring Glory to God by caring for the environment and your neighbour.

How does Creation Care affect the poor?

Food Insecurity

The families we talk to testify that 15 to 20 years ago the rains were predictable and steady. Today, the rains come late or not at all. When the rains come, they are no longer gentle, but torrential; washing valuable top toil away and flooding crops. The change makes it harder for farmers to grow enough to eat.

Increased Disasters

Disasters such as drought and cyclones are becoming more frequent and severe. Families that live in poverty can’t leave when disaster strikes. And in many of the countries we work, there are no safety nets. They are forced to cope, often remaining in perpetual poverty.

Increased Conflict

The increased scarcity of resources such as food and water increases the likelihood of conflict between people groups. Many of the recent conflicts (Syria, South Sudan) has been caused in part or exacerbated due to this scarcity.
Tearfund Canada is part of a global campaign called Renew Our World. We have a vision for a world where all people have their basic needs met and a chance to flourish.
