We present a simple model for the collective behavior exhibited by chaotic coupled map lattices (CMLs) in any space dimension which takes into account local fluctuations and short-range correlations. This reduces the dynamics of CMLs to the evolution of a one-body distribution function coupled to a coherence length. Quantitatively good results are obtained, especially in the case of coupled tent maps, even though no free parameter is available.
