This point was also stressed by Jesse Mugambi, from the University of Nairobi and a member of the WCC working group on climate change. "The world is a world in which we are all relatives, but somewhere along the line we decided [...] to treat each other as strangers", he said.
Africa - conflict over resources Mugambi explained that in Africa climate change is already causing both severe droughts on the one hand, and flooding on the other.. With the help of maps he showed that those parts of the continent rich in water and cultivable land are also the areas of greatest conflict. Such a conflict "has nothing to do with ethnicity, it has to do with resources."
For Mugambi, the role of Christian faith and religion in general - through its leaders, theologians and ethicists - is that of "bringing us back to the norms" that can contribute to address a challenge like climate change.
"We are not talking about 'helping' African countries", Mugambi said.

Church leaders slam Copenhagen, 21 Dec 2009 [cached]
Kenyan professor Jesse Mugambi, a member of the WCC working group on climate change, said, "Copenhagen was a missed opportunity by the industrialised countries to lead by example."
Mugambi noted, "While countries like China and India came with concrete measures they have voluntarily taken to reduce CO2 emissions, they are not committed to do so as they are not members of the Annex 1 countries of the Kyoto Protocol."
Industrialised countries failed He added, "Most of the industrialised countries didn't show the needed commitment to lead the whole world in an effective way to address the challenges of climate change."
