Commission on Relief and Development (CONRAD)

This task force will work with evangelicals and especially evangelical leaders to formulate a plan for the EAC response; initiate activities aimed at increasing awareness and action of the climate crisis. It will present practical ways to encourage ecologically faithful living; explore how climate crisis is affecting Caribbean nations; encourage the development of biblical and theological capacity relevant to the climate crisis; and develop a strategic plan for EAC that includes practical, short– term projects and midterm and longer–term commitments.
