A worldwide network to fight against climate change

The Climate Action Network (CAN) is a worldwide network of over 1300 Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in more than 120 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 information exchange and the coordinated development of NGO strategy on international, regional, and national climate issues. CAN has regional network hubs that coordinate these efforts around the world. 

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

The CAN Network is divided into: 

CAN International 

CAN Europe 

CAN E-Eur, Caucasus and Central Asia

CAN Latin America 

CAN Arab World

CAN Pacific Islands

CAN South Asia 

CAN West and Central Africa

CAN South East Asia 

CAN Australia
