Climate Action Network - International

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: July 8, 2014, 2:38 AM

Description

The Climate Action Network (CAN) is a worldwide network of over 900 Non- Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in roughly 100 countries working to promote government and individual action to limit human-induced climate change to ecologically sustainable levels.

CAN members work to achieve this goal through the coordination of information exchange and NGO strategy on international, regional and national climate issues. CAN has a number of regional offices which co-ordinate these efforts in Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, Europe, Latin America, North America, South Asia, and Southeast Asia.

CAN members place a high priority on both a healthy environment and development that "meets the needs of the present without comprimising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" (Brundtland Commission). Climate Action Network's vision is to protect the atmosphere while allowing for sustainable and equitable development worldwide.
