Under the auspice of GCCN and with funding from the state government Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action, a Gippsland Alliance was formed. Five councils are now part of the Alliance: East Gippsland, Latrobe City, South Gippsland, Wellington, with the most recent member Baw Baw Shire Council. The Gippsland Alliance for Climate Action (GACA) is a local government specific climate organisation that aims to provide stronger advocacy capacity for the region and a more coordinated Gippsland approach to climate change.
GACA is now part of the statewide Victorian Green House Alliance and works with member councils to deliver regional climate mitigation and adaptation projects and provides a key platform for collaboration between councils.
