Khayelitsha is the largest township near Cape Town, South Africa. More people are moving in every day, but infrastructure isn't keeping up. Many residents have no power or hot water. The "Kuyasa" climate protection project launched here received the first Gold Standard quality benchmark worldwide.The recognition ensures that projects follow Kyoto Protocol guidelines and actually reduce emissions of harmful greenhouse gases. Gold Standard projects must adhere to strict requirements - the goal is to improve both the climate and living conditions for local residents.
