Christian Aid: April 2019
Christian Aid's Chief Executive, Amanda Khozi Mukwashi, is travelling to Washington DC and New York for a series of high level meetings at the World Bank and Finance for Development conference respectively, where she will be promoting the cause of the world's poorest.
Amanda will be arguing that the global economic system is broken at the World Bank Spring meetings in Washington DC from 8-12 April, and the Finance for Development conference in New York from 12-16 April.
Despite convincing rhetoric and grand gestures from those in power, and despite the pledges to leave no one behind, Christian Aid believes that the oppression of marginalised people is deeply embedded in how the global economic system operates — a system which prioritises insatiable growth beyond the Earth's ecological limits and one which devalues the lives and dignity of billions of people across the Global South.
Our global economic system's reliance on a fossil fuel driven growth places unsustainable and existential pressures on both people and planet. The public banks including the World Banks Group (WBG) and the private sector should be leading the way towards an equitable, just and climate safe future. This needs to happen at a fast pace.
