The solution proposed here is the development and implementation of the first global scale Programme of Activities financed partly through carbon revenues: the International Water Purification Programme.

The purpose of the PoA is to use carbon finance for the introduction of low greenhouse gas emitting water purification systems to provide clean drinking water to low income households. This PoA is structured as an open platform and will be registered under UNFCCC. It is a multi-country programme that is open to different players and different types of water purification technologies.
