Tearfund is a UK-based Christian relief and development agency working with a global network of churches to help eradicate poverty.

Tearfund supports local partners in more than 50 countries and has operational programmes in response to specific disasters.We've seen first-hand how the impacts of environmental issues, such as climate change, are already affecting many of the world’s poorest people. We think thedefining issues of our time centre around the three challenges of; Poverty, environmental sustainability, and inequality.

To tackle these, we believe that there needs to be a shift in both the way we live and a systemic change in how our economies function. The Green Economy Coalition provides an excellent opportunity for us to share, learn and work with others.
