The Blue Peace Index, developed by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) with the SDC and a large panel of experts, is built across five pillars of evaluation:
The Index has many uses:
inaugural 2019 index was applied to five river basins at different
levels of development in different parts of the world: Amazon, Mekong,
Sava, Senegal, and Tigris-Euphrates. It has gained strong interest from
different parties, such as a student, who applied the Blue Peace Index
on the Colorado and Columbia rivers in 2019.
The application of the index to additional river basins
is underway. If you are interested in applying the index to your own
work and/or river basin, please reach out to Stephanie Piers de Raveschoot of the Global Programme Water.
