New initiative has been launched to help millions of farmers currently tackling the impacts of climate change. With 90 per cent of the African population involved in agriculture for their livelihood and 65 per cent of the workforce employed in the sector, sustainability is fundamental.

JOIN US BE A STEWARD
There is a great need and demand for clear and contextual data and information on climate change and its relation to environmental management, biodiversity, agriculture, energy, health and food security from a Christian (Stewardship) perspective. Locally produced information is often scarce, while information produced outside the local radius may be inappropriate or too general for recipients to connect with it and derive valuable meaning.
Its critical for the collective Christian community to find a platform through which their voices can be heard, their vulnerabilities known, and their actions inclusive. We seek to promote government and individual mitigation and adaptation actions to limit human-induced climate change to ecologically sustainable levels.
We are determined to provide a foundation for facilitating the Churches’ input in the framing of stewardship premised climate and environmental policies. The Church has a moral responsibility to assess, diagnose, and support nations’ efforts to achieve low-carbon growth and influencing policies accounts for a huge part of that responsibility.
We seek to drive high-level engagements addressing strategies on how to deliver strategic climate commitments and collectively embed the climate transformation agenda in government, civil society, Christian community and among the general population. CIFA hosts a number of key and critical events.
For many people, climate change matters are regarded as scientist issues. The subject is rather technical and very often difficult to deal with without making reference to technical lingo and terms that demand definitions in order to be demystified. The result is that a lot of people tend to sideline the subject, yet it remains one of the most crucial areas worthy of our concentrated attention.
Climate change matters are indeed church matters. The church has a kingdom mandate to ensure that the earth and all of God's creation is stewarded faithfully and correctly. This mandate makes the church an anchor component and key constituency when it comes to climate change issues and concerns. The church is anointed to steward and effectively manage and when it embraces its God ordained function, raging waves can be calmed.
