We are the largest network of climate NGOs in the Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA) region. Our network has existed since 2008 and it is part of the Climate Action Network International, which brings together more than 1 500 civil society organizations in 130 countries.

At the moment, 58 NGOs in 11 countries of the region (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine) are members of the network.

We are working to ensure that the civil society of the region is strong and organized, that the EECCA countries implement policies leading to climate neutrality and a green economy, and that there is coherence between the first and second processes based on climate justice.

The EECCA region often falls out of the global focus of the climate agenda due to political instability, corruption, and censored media.

We are working to consolidate and promote the priorities of civil society organizations in the EECCA region to the international level.

The civil society of the EECCA countries does not yet have sufficient power to influence the policy-making of their countries, as they are often subject to repression, have many barriers to sustainable financing and cannot fully use the mechanisms of participation in decision-making.

We strengthen the voice of the people at the regional and international level, communicate the demands of network members to decision makers and promote mechanisms for civil society participation in decision-making.

The EECCA region is highly dependent on fossil fuels. Countries are slow to cut greenhouse gas emissions and implement truly ambitious climate policies.

We analyze the positions of countries on the path to climate neutrality and directly appeal to decision makers to take concrete measures to combat the climate crisis.

Our Vision:

A strong civil society in Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia has helped to avert the climate crisis through climate neutrality, fossil-fuel phase-out, fair use of natural resources and the development of green economy opportunities.

Our mission:

Support, strengthen and develop civil society organizations in the EECCA region in their ability to influence the design and implementation of climate policies that lead to a climate neutral and more equitable future.
