Applications invited: Swiss Re ReSource Award: Award US$150,000

Deadline- 30 April 2013

Applications are invited for International ReSource Award for Sustainable Watershed Management organized by Swiss Re. Grand award will be offered up to US$150,000. The goal of this project is to make sustainable access to clean water supplies in developing and emerging countries.

The ReSource Award is an internationally recognized prize for leadership in implementing the principles of sustainability in
watershed management. It is conferred annually. The prize money is awarded exclusively for project implementation activities and not for building-up or strengthening the organizations that are submitting an application.

Eligibility & Criteria-
NGOs, private, scientific or public institutions and similar bodies are invited to participate in the tender for the International ReSource Award for Sustainable Watershed Management.
Projects comprising more than one institution (eg public-private partnerships) are also eligible for the award. Bodies with strong links to the local communities of regions where water sources are located are particularly encouraged to participate.
In order to qualify, participants are asked to provide a proven track record in sustainability and project planning and/or management in the specific field of water and source management.
Preference will be given to those projects which demonstrate innovative preventative measures for protecting water resources, ie projects that have a pioneering character in the local context (cultural, institutional or technological) and involve local community
and/or regional institutions. Such projects should be based on transferable concepts and thus enable sustained efforts to be made to protect the quality and availability of (drinking) water in other locations.
