CCIL is the members of organisations below:
The Asian Disaster Reduction and Response Network (ADRRN) is a civil society coalition comprised of 62 national and international NGOs across 19 countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Established in 2002, ADRRN has rapidly evolved from an awareness-raising network into a leading regional advocate and capacity builder for disaster risk reduction. ADRRN amplifies its influence through collaboration with national networks, global partners, United Nations agencies, regional stakeholders, and local communities. By promoting partnerships among its members, ADRRN strengthens the disaster preparedness and response capabilities of NGOs, community-based organizations, the private sector, and vulnerable populations. ADRRN represents the voice of Asian civil society in major regional and global forums on building resilience to disasters and climate change impacts.
The Adaptation Research Alliance (ARA) is a global coalition committed to supporting vulnerable communities impacted by climate change. Its diverse membership encompasses researchers, funders, policymakers, development organizations, and community groups dedicated to action-oriented, user-needs-driven research that informs inclusive climate adaptation solutions. As an advocate, facilitator and catalyst for this approach, ARA provides resources for climate change frontline stakeholders and fosters collaborative partnerships to develop effective, equitable innovations. Guided by principles of localization, co-production, and social justice, ARA supports research that enhances climate resilience capabilities worldwide, especially among marginalized communities bearing the brunt of climate change impacts. ARA brings together international expertise to advance climate adaptation globally and empower vulnerable populations to address the unfolding climate crisis.
Climate Action Network (CAN) is the world's largest climate alliance, composed of over 1,900 civil society organizations across more than 130 countries collectively fighting the climate emergency. Since its inception in the late 1980s, CAN has evolved into a diverse, member-driven coalition spanning six continents. With its diversity and longstanding leadership steering the climate movement, CAN continues to build bridges and foster alignment with partners across the movement to push key stakeholders towards bold, urgent climate action. This includes phasing out fossil fuels and addressing the needs of vulnerable communities disproportionately impacted by the climate crisis. As the largest global network dedicated to climate advocacy, CAN leverages its expertise, global reach, and power in numbers to drive the swift, transformative societal changes required to tackle the climate emergency head-on.
The HKCSS is a statutory body established in 1947. Together with the Agency Members, the HKCSS uphold social justice and equality in our mission to advance the well-being of the Hong Kong community. The HKCSS is committed to building an impact-oriented, collaborative and innovative social service sector, and co-creating a better society with stakeholders across different sectors. The HKCSS has over 510 Agency Members, with service units throughout Hong Kong, providing high-quality social services to those in need.
The Paris Agreement Article 6 Implementation Partnership (A6IP) aims to build capacity for implementing high-integrity carbon credit mechanisms under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement. Established at COP27, A6IP promotes understanding of Article 6 rules, shares best practices for governance arrangements, conducts training on reporting and technical review, assists in developing sound baseline methodologies, and supports the design of carbon credit mechanisms with environmental integrity. Through international collaboration, A6IP seeks to enhance capabilities for robust crediting and transparency needed to realize the potential of Article 6 in raising climate ambition. By championing rigorous standards, A6IP aims to advance equitable, transparent carbon credit mechanisms that drive sustainable development and meaningful global emission reductions in line with the temperature goals of the Paris Agreement.
The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) secretariat supports the global response to the climate crisis. With nearly universal membership of 198 Parties, the UNFCCC oversees three pivotal agreements: the founding 1992 UNFCCC treaty, 1997 Kyoto Protocol, and 2015 Paris Agreement. The overarching objective of the Paris Agreement is to limit global temperature rise this century to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Overall, the UNFCCC agreements share the goal of stabilizing greenhouse gas concentrations to prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system, allowing time for ecosystems to naturally adapt and enabling sustainable development. As the core UN entity tasked with driving climate action, the UNFCCC plays a critical role in spearheading the global collaboration urgently needed to tackle the existential threat of climate change.
CCIL's JC SolarCare Programme was listed as one of the Notable Shortlisted Cases of the 2nd CityNet-ESCAP SDG City Awards (2023). Including 154 municipalities, NGOs, private companies, and research centres (as of 2023), CityNet was established in 1987 with the support of United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and Pacific (ESCAP), UNDP, and UN-HABITAT. CityNet connects actors, exchange knowledge, and build commitment to establish more sustainable and resilient cities. Through capacity building, city-to-city cooperation, and tangible projects, CityNet helps their members respond to climate change, disaster, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
