PICAN is the Pacific Islands network of the Climate Action Network (CAN).
The Climate Action Network is a worldwide network of over 900 Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in more than 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 information exchange and the coordinated development of NGO strategy on international, regional, and national climate issues.
CAN is organized into regional and national “nodes”. Each node is responsible for its own governance and procedures, and conduct joint policy and advocacy work within its given country or region. Pacific Island Climate Action Network-PICAN, represents the Pacific region.
