Afghanistan: our response


The withdrawal of international forces, and the seizure of power by the Taliban, has created uncertainty and concern across the country. Through the Hunger Appeal, we’ve already been able to provide some relief to communities, and will continue advocating and providing this urgent humanitarian need. We remain completely committed to working alongside local agencies and standing together with the people and communities of Afghanistan.

Our first annual lecture

Lebanon one year on

In this inaugural lecture Sir Partha Dasgupta, one of the UK’s most eminent economists, traced ecological loss back to power, knowledge and agency.  He highlighted how important it is for local voices to put forward their own answers to ecological crises, rather than have external solutions foisted upon them, which can often be destructive.


After the lecture, Dasgupta was joined in conversation by Dr Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury and Chair of Christian Aid.
