The Women's Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN), formerly the International Women's Environment and Climate Initiative (IWECI) is a solutions-based, multi-faceted effort established to engage women worldwide to take action as powerful stakeholders in climate change and sustainability solutions.  The initiative engages civil society, grassroots activists, indigenous and business leaders, policy makers and culture shapers in coalitions of collaboration.  The purpose is to stop the escalation of climate change and environmental and community degradation, while ushering in sustainability solutions through women's empowerment, networking, partnerships, trainings, alliances, advocacy campaigns, and political, economic and social action.
