COMMUNITY SUPPORT SCHEME
All the tree planting and carbon offset projects supported benefit people, but with these community-based carbon avoidance projects the benefits for people in developing countries are perhaps the most obvious. Reducing or avoiding carbon emissions can go hand-in-hand with projects that improve people's daily lives directly within their homes.

Improving access to clean water.
Healthier living and reducing the time spent gathering water are the obvious and immediate benefits to people. This may not seem like a climate solution, but it means that dirty water doesn't have to boiled to make it safer, so less fuel has to be burned, creating fewer emissions.
By replacing cookstoves with ones that are more fuel-efficient you can significantly reduce the amount of air pollutants in homes, improving respiratory health. Less biomass fuel is also burned in cooking, reducing daily emissions.
