Reagan's story

Reagan (pictured above) is a beekeeper in his home county of Isiolo, Kenya. His work and livelihood are threatened by multiple climate-induced shocks such as drought, flood, and locusts. Paired with the setbacks of Covid and the war in Ukraine disrupting global food markets, it is becoming increasingly difficult for communities like his to meet their minimum food needs, causing community rifts and conflict.

Our sisters and brothers overseas are facing the perfect storm - the effects of climate change, Covid and conflict. These shocks reveal the underlying injustices in our food system and global economy. How are we called to respond?

We warmly invite members of religious orders to come together to reflect on this question. We will be joined by Gareth Rowe, research fellow with CAFOD and Durham University, who will share his reflections and lead the discussion.
