The Global Water Pathogens Project (GWPP) is a knowledge resource on pathogens supporting sanitation and safe water and promoting quantitative information via monitoring of sewage, fecal sludges and freshwaters to inform public health measures.
As a resource and hub on water pathogens the knowledge will guide the goals for public health surveillance, sanitation and achieving safe water around the world using the power of new information technology and tools.
The Global Water Pathogens Project is a network of international scientists/engineers and public health professionals dedicated to safe water and sanitation providing quantitative data on pathogens in wastewater, water and the environment.
The goals are to provide knowledge to support the SDG6 and information on emerging pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater to inform public health endeavors.
There are over 300 members of the GWPP who represent environmental microbiology, wastewater surveillance, public health, and environmental engineering
