Kole District Borehole Rehabilitation

Kole is a largely rural district in which local people typically use wood fuel on inefficient three stone fires to purify their drinking, cleaning and washing water.  This process results in the release of greenhouse gas emissions from the combustion of wood - this can be avoided if a technology that does not require fuel (wood or fossil) supplies clean water desired by households.  

co2balance gets funding for this project by marketing the anticipated carbon credits from the wood savings to ethical investors, so borehole owners must agree to transfer the emissions reductions over to co2balance in return for them supplying the work to renovate the boreholes.  This project will be developed under the Gold Standard carbon credit body, which in addition to checking that the carbon credits from this project are real, also measures local social, environmental and economical impact.
