Media Centre

CAN is an important, critical voice in the international climate policy process. The network’s regular press briefings and commentary help journalists and their audience make sense of what can be a baffling process, even to those who have been covering it for years.

CAN helps coordinate and amplify the communications work of its 900 members around major international climate processes. CAN also provides an important capacity building role for some members interested in boosting their communications efforts.
