  • NIFEA Campaign Planning Meeting and Workshop on Just Taxation and Reparations Ecological Concerns

    The 4th meeting of the Ecumenical Panel on a New International Financial and Economic Architecture (NIFEA) – a panel of experts in theology and economics convened by the World Council of Churches, World Communion of Reformed Churches, Council for World Mission and the Lutheran World Federation – held in Durban, South Africa, during 16th- 20th March 2019, underlined two critical consequences of the current financial and economic system: the widening wealth gap and climate change. The consultation suggested Taxation as an important tool for sharing wealth equitably within and across countries as well as for holding corporations and citizens accountable. Consultation demanded that the ecological damage caused by the developed countries has to be compensated by the developed countries. Churches have therefore called for the transfer of resources from affluent nations to impoverished ones as well as for debt cancellation as reparations for irreversible loss and damage arising from a warming climate. Dr. Mathew Koshy Punnackad, Hon. Director of CSI Synod Department of Ecological Concerns participated and presented his views in the four-day workshop.
