The Climate Action Network International (CANI) is a worldwide network of over 1100 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.
CANI members work to achieve this goal through information exchange and the coordinated development of NGO strategy on international, regional, and national climate issues. CANI has regional network hubs that coordinate these efforts around the world.
CANI 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.
CANI is an umbrella group of environmental non-governmental organisations (NGOs) active on the issue of climate change. It is most active at meetings of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), where it publishes a daily newsletter “ECO”, presenting the views of the green NGO community.
