The Western Alliance for Greenhouse Action (WAGA) was established in 2006 to bring together interested councils and other organisations committed to a collaborative response to climate change across the region. At present, its members are the eight WAGA councils. Associate members in the past have included Victoria University and the Western Region Environment Centre.
The western region of Melbourne is prospering in a changing climate and is a desirable region to live in with sustainable communities.
WAGA will lead and support collaborative action to decrease greenhouse gas emissions and increase the resilience and adaptive capacity of its communities through partnerships between local communities, government, industry and research bodies in order to create liveable communities now and for the future.
