This document gives clarity to CAN and its members about the way the CAN network is organized and works. It also gives other readers a description of CAN.
CAN is a network of NGOs working on climate change from around the world. These members are autonomous and independent. Many of these members have their own forms of organization and their own national or regional rules.
In joining the CAN network, members all contributed to producing these constitutional rules and guidelines for the CAN network. This document tends to facilitate and enable decision-making, rather than prescribe rules.
