    The MVP is a multi-stakeholder project spearheaded by the Earth Institute, Columbia University, where scientists and researchers are helping to bring the latest evidence, technology, and practices into the project; and Millennium Promise, which oversees project operations. The project relies heavily on local governments and community participation in planning and carrying out interventions. Local, regional, and national governments play a key role in selecting MV sites and implementing interventions. The project also partners with several UN organizations, including UNAIDS, UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF, UNOPS, the World Food Programme, and the Broadband Commission for Digital Development, a joint initiative of the International Telecommunications Union and UNESCO. These partnerships ensure strong country- and international-level connections to global policy agendas. Scores of companies, individuals, foundations, governments, and other institutions also support the project, enabling communities to achieve tremendous gains through access to technology, in-kind donations, direct funding, and technical backing.
