INTERNATIONAL CLIMATE ACTION
As a global Network, Alliances for Climate Action connects member alliances to broaden and deepen the collective knowledge and capacity for collaborative climate work. As this shared knowledge grows, it is encouraging further creativity and innovation in climate action.
The Alliances also come together on the global stage to showcase the actions that their members are taking, inspire more climate action across the world and encourage national governments to be more ambitious.
