Peer Water Exchange: A Web-Based Platform for Global Water and Sanitation Projects

Nominated by Howard Silverman

Peer Water Exchange, a project of the Blue Planet Run Foundation, has caught my attention for its savvy program design. The web-based platform enables prospective water and sanitation projects around the world to seek funding through a transparent process of extended peer review and Q&A. If a project gets funded, its status reports are also open to public view. Completed projects are assessed through 3rd-party visits from a network of global partners that includes Oxfam, Rotary International, and the Peace Corps. 140 projects have been peer reviewed and $2 million distributed through Peer Water Exchange.
