Climate Action Network seeks funds to continue our vital work pushing for ambitious action in Australia to tackle climate change. The problem is more urgent than ever. Australia now has a carbon price mechanism, but 2012 presents new challenges and CANA will be there, linking Australian climate advocacy to the global community and driving cooperation and collaboration at the community and national level.
How will the funds be used?
Funds allow Climate Action Network Australia to facilitate more effective and ambitious climate change advocacy among our 75 member groups. We will continue to attend and provide analysis of the international climate talks, and to draw civil society together on a comprehensive climate change agenda for 2012 and beyond.
Key Areas of Expenditure
- Workshops, meetings, conference and coordination to drive joint work among Australian civil society
- Travel, expenses and staffing as the Australian NGO presence at the international climate negotiations
- Providing materials for community groups to engage in grassroots awareness raising on the urgency of climate change.
