The Ecological Management Foundation (EMF) is a typical non-profit, network organization: the head office is based in Amsterdam and staffed by a committed group of part-time employees and volunteers; several partner organizations around the world share the same ideals and ambitions and provide support where and when needed.
Furthermore, EMF is dedicated to improving access to clean water and sanitation facilities in developing countries. EMF identifies, promotes and incubates small-scale projects that are innovative, practical, solution-oriented, and have a broad impact in the target country. We achieve this through providing three types of services:
1) Think tank:
We watch trends and set out a vision on the kind of innovation that would alleviate the shortage of clean water in developing countries. We spread awareness of third world water issues through articles, documentaries and workshops.
2) Match Maker:
We build networks and translate trends and visions from the think tank into viable projects and initiatives by bringing key partners together.
We initiate pilot projects and compile business plans and road maps to scale up successful pilots.
