The International Climate Councils Network (ICCN) is the first global network of national climate advisory bodies.
Launched in 2021 at COP26, the ICCN’s purpose is to foster collaboration between organizations providing expert, evidence-led advice on climate policy, as outlined in its letter to governments. The ICCN supports the development of new national organizations to engage in guiding and evaluating the delivery of climate policy for mitigation and adaptation.
The ICCN is made up of more than 20 climate advisory bodies. In 2022, the ICCN is co-chaired by Canada’s Net-Zero Advisory Body and the Canadian Climate Institute, France’s Haut Conseil pour le Climat, and Sistema Guatemalteco de Ciencias del Cambio Climático, with transition support from the UK Climate Change Committee.
The ICCN was launched under the leadership of the UK Climate Change Committee, Chile Scientific Committee on Climate Change, Finland Climate Change Panel, and Sweden Climate Policy Council.
