  • Innovation in Water and Cooking in Rural Rwanda

    You will meet and see the work in rural villages of Delagua and Manna Energy who registered the world’s first United Nations Clean Development Mechanism carbon programme for water treatment.

    The programme enables the installation of water treatment systems for millions in the country’s rural areas.

    Carbon credits are generated by the reduction in wood fuel through the use cooking stoves that use less wood and burn more efficiently, thereby reducing climate harming greenhouse gases. The stoves reduce diseases caused by air pollution.

    The carbon credits generate the revenue to build systems that provide clean, safe drinking water.

    This programme includes on-going support and education that is directed by high tech and satellite monitoring of the use and effectiveness of the stoves and water systems provided.
