About this Webinar:
As you may know, a great portion of the Rwandan people face critical public health challenges every day. However, in partnership with the Government of Rwanda Ministry of Health and the Rwanda Environmental Management Authority, the DelAgua Health and Development Program has been working on an ongoing project to address these challenges through the benefits of carbon financing.
The program that DelAgua aims to put in place will distribute, install, and maintain cleaner water and energy technologies developed by Manna Energy Limited. These technologies include point-of-use water treatment and high-efficiency cookstoves, which will allow Rwandan locals to earn carbon credits by respectively reducing firewood usage and providing an alternative to boiling water. In the summer of 2014, it is DelAgua’s goal to scale this program to reach 3 million residents across all 30 districts of Rwanda, targeting the people of Ubudehe categories 1 and 2, approximately 30% of the entire country.
