Carbon credits and carbon markets are a component of international attempts to mitigate the growth in concentrations of greenhouse gases. Household water treatment implementers have recently tapped into carbon markets to finance the delivery of household water treatment.
Join in this webinar to learn more the United Nations Framework on Climate Change (UNFCC) and the instrument it governs, the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and the linkages between credits, household water treatment and clean cook stoves. Implementers will share their experiences and webinar participants will have the opportunity to poise questions and learn more about this potentially lucrative, and at times controversial, funding mechanism.
