A secure water supply is the foundation of a strong economy, but it is grossly undervalued globally. In India, less than half of the population has access to properly managed drinking water. Waterborne infections are projected to cost India almost USD 600 million each year.

Carbon offsets, which are sold as a result of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, can be used to fund projects that help communities gain access to clean water.
