California Climate Action Network

California is at the forefront of the worldwide effort to tackle the causes - and consequences - of global warming. The state has set ambitious goals to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to 1990 levels by 2020, and to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050.

Strong state goals require effective local action. The California Climate Action Network (CCAN) was formed to help California communities play a leadership role both to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to prepare for the consequences of climate change.

CCAN helps local officials, technical experts, community leaders and others to share information, tap into resources and work together on innovative climate action programs. These networks help create and strengthen local and regional partnerships to take action on global warming.

CCAN is a project of the Institute for Local Government (ILG). The ILG serves as a source of independent research and information for California's communities and their leaders. It is the nonprofit research affiliate of the League of California Cities and the California State Association of Counties. The ILG's materials help city, county and special district officials.
