Steve Thorne, Technology Transfer Programme Director, of SouthSouthNorth Africa, of South Africa, described the SSN Kuyasa project, an upgrade of low cost housing with energy efficient lighting, solar water heaters, ceilings and ceiling insulation, as delivering very high sustainable development benefits. This project is the very first Gold Standard project to be registered in the world! He revealed some of the lessons learned, highlighting the lesson that that although projects with many beneficiaries may be process intensive; they so provide security and ownership co-benefits. He explained how Gold Standard projects can deliver sustainable development benefits as well as achieve a premium on Certified Emission Reduction prices.
Thais Corral, Capacity Building Programme Director, of the Human Development Network (REDEH) in Brazil, explained that SSN is a learning organisation and as such is building institutional capacity, the capacity of SSN's partners, and southern capacity in general, as a way to pursue structural poverty reduction in the South. She said that SSN projects deliver global GHG emissions reductions projects with poverty reduction and also projects that assist communities in adapting to climate change.

"The application of suppressed demand in the development of baselines for future development projects in poor parts of the world, and notably Africa, could provide necessary leverage to speed infrastructural development that involves a leap-frog to cleaner energy technologies at the time of first access diminishing the need for unlearning dirty habits" says Steve Thorne, Technology Receptivity Director of SSN. "Kuyasa - a low cost housing area in South Africa is where SSN have applied the above rationale to the first CDM project to be registered in Africa and the first Gold Standard Project in the world. The same rationale is now being applied to the development of a sectoral CDM project in new and existing projects throughout South Africa by SSN", says Thorne.
