Gippsland councils collaborating to create effective climate action and build capacity across the region

Gippsland Alliance for Climate Action (GACA) is a formal collaboration of councils across Gippsland working on climate change.

GACA works with member councils to deliver regional climate mitigation and adaptation projects, and provides a key platform for information sharing between councils.

GACA is one of eight Greenhouse Alliances, who together form the Victorian Greenhouse Alliances.
