USCAN is the largest US network of organizations focused on climate change. USCAN plays a critical role as the only network connecting organizations working on climate advocacy and policy development at all three levels of the debate: state/regional, federal, and international, all of which are increasingly interdependent.
USCAN's mission is to support and assist civil society organizations to influence the design and development of an effective, equitable and sustainable global strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and ensure its implementation at international, national and local levels.
USCAN is the US arm of the Climate Action Network (CAN), a global network of over 700 environment, energy, development, and faith based NGOs working collaboratively to address the causes of global warming and promote equitable solutions.
