State of the Environment
We publish the Caritas State of the Environment for Oceania report each 4 October on the Feast of St Francis. Associated stories, video, comment and analysis are available online here. The work is carried out in close cooperation with other Caritas members and our partners on the ground in Oceania.
The State of the Environment for Oceania (SEFO) report and online material monitor five key issues for Oceania peoples:
- Coastal erosion and sea level rise
- Food and water
- Extreme weather
- Offshore mining and drilling
- Climate finance
Through the eyes of our partners and associates, we shed light on environmental impacts and responses to these issues in our common home in Oceania. We aim to amplify the voices of the region crying our for justice for Papatūānuku - our sister, Mother Earth - and her children. Join the discussion in our online talanoa on Facebook: The Oceanian.
