"Preparations for eventual resettlement of South Pacific Island communities must begin now rather than later." -Pacific Conference of Churches Climate Change and Resettlement Program
With these words and the actions that follow, the Pacific Conference of Churches (PCC) is emerging as a leader in the ecumenical climate justice movement. As rising sea levels force migration and threaten the livelihoods of South Pacific people, PCC is increasingly sought after by regional and national churches and civil society groups to advocate for the rights of people marginalized by climate change. PCC's work in this area includes not only human and economic rights advocacy but also disaster risk reduction programs at the community level.
