Blue Planet Network Mission
Blue Planet Network – a combination of award-winning online technologies and a growing network of funding and implementation members - is aimed at radically improving water program impact and efficiencies in developing nations, where investments have been inadequate and progress is slow.
Blue Planet Network is a collaborative "learning community" that encourages best practices and delivers compelling tools to funders and implementers to improve investment selection, management, monitoring, and analysis. This leads to better outcomes and lower costs. We enable everyone in the water sector – funders, implementers and communities – to see their impact and deliver their best.
Our goal is to enable millions of people with sustainable safe drinking water, the first step toward education, healthy lives and economic opportunity.
We have been able to achieve a great deal with the support of our members, partners and donors:
•800,000 people enabled by safe drinking water and/or sanitation
-World's largest online platform and library of water & sanitation projects : $30 million
•Network of 77 members working in 24 countries
•2010 Intel Environment Tech Award
•Cisco Foundation, Silicon Valley Social Venture Fund & The May and Stanley Smith Charitable Trust
More accessible & sustainable safe drinking water --> more people with more chances to live productive lives!
