The GWPP mission is to be a knowledge resource and hub on water pathogens which will guide the goals for sanitation and achieving safe water around the world using the power of new information technology and tools.

The Global Water Pathogen Project (GWPP) aims at developing a knowledge resource to reduce mortality linked to water pathogens and the lack of safe drinking water and basic sanitation through creating the state-of-the-art knowledge hub on water-related disease risks and intervention measures, including new and emerging pathogens and updated scientific data replacing the current benchmark reference work of Feachem et al.

The Global Water Pathogen Project (GWPP) is implemented by the Intergovernmental Hydrological Programme (IHP) of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and Michigan State University (MSU).

Venthic in collaboration with Michigan State University is building the GWPP online platform.
