Access to safe water in Uganda and globally
Saturday, June 8, 2013
Solvatten is included in a myclimate programme to disseminate water purification systems to low-income households, starting in Uganda. Carbon finance will be used to give households access to the clean water technologies thereby improving the livelihoods and health conditions of thousands of people.
The programme will promote the scaled dissemination of clean water technologies around the world. After Uganda, myclimate’s implementing partner has already identified other countries such as Indonesia, Haiti, Rwanda, Sudan, Mozambique, Ethiopia, and Kenya as potential target areas for programme activities. It will work with local and international organizations to identify the most appropriate products for varying national contexts. myclimate invests the revenues from Carbon offsetting in the project in the form of activities that facilitate project scale-up, such as direct technology subsidies, developing marketing and outreach resources, capacity building and enhancing distribution channels.
