The Northern Alliance for Greenhouse Action

About Northern Alliance for Greenhouse Action

Northern Alliance for Greenhouse Action (NAGA) formed in 2002 as a network that shares information, coordinates emission reduction and adaptation activities, and cooperates on the research and development of innovative projects.

NAGA's goal is to substantially contribute to the transition to a low-carbon future by delivering effective programs and leveraging local government, community and business action.

NAGA's members are the local councils of Banyule, Darebin, Hume, Manningham, Melbourne, Moreland, Whittlesea, Yarra, Nillumbik Shire Council and the Australian Energy Foundation (previously the Moreland Energy Foundation or MEFL).

NAGA and its members have demonstrated significant climate change action innovation at the local government and regional level. NAGA also establishes partnerships and linkages with state and federal government agencies and departments, local government and industry associations, research institutions, community groups and consultants, to facilitate climate change action in the northern metropolitan region.
