The Crisis We Face
Bishop Juan Carlos is the Bishop of Quibdo Diocese in Colombia, a long-standing partner of SCIAF, working to defend the rights of our people and planet.
"We have felt the impact of climate change very strongly here in Colombia. Here in this diocese, there is a tropical rainforest. The Colombia Pacific Rainforest coast. It is the second green lung of Colombia after the Amazon.
"At COP26, people will talk about defending the Amazon, but we must also value and defend the Colombian Pacific and other similar places. We are all under threat."
