Economic, Ecological and Gender Justice
God’s household of life is threatened in various ways in an era of dangerous paradoxes. The neo-liberal economic paradigm of “global free markets” has amassed more material wealth than ever in the hands of a small minority. The very processes of wealth creation have engendered massive inequalities and highly destabilizing trends. The lives of the poor are being sacrificed for the gains of the rich.
The present world development model is threatening the lives and livelihoods of many, especially among the world’s poorest people and destroying bio-diversity, impacting sea levels arise, variability of monsoon increased frequency, intensity of extreme wealth events, melting glaciers and snow, droughts, floods and stress in agriculture and livestock’s.
Gender inequality is most serious and pervasive form of discrimination in the world. While this affects everyone, it is women and girls who face the most discrimination as a result of gender inequality which is a key driver of poverty and a fundamental denial of women’s right.
