Saving lives through carbon offsetting: Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen at TEDxLausanne

http://www.tedxlausanne.org - In his talk, Mikkel Vestergaard explains how his company has successfully leveraged international carbon markets to sustainably finance the first large-scale water purification program, providing safe drinking water to more than 4 million people, and directly tied this funding to measurable development outcomes. This new pay-for-performance model of financing global health realigns incentives to create long-term investment in health impact for child and maternal health and the prevention of water-borne diseases, and can be scaled up and applied to other areas of global health to accelerate progress toward our collective commitments within the Millennium Development Goals. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
