Stockholm Water Prize – Nominations Open

 

The Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) is a policy institute that generates knowledge and informs decision-making towards sensible water policy.

SIWI runs the annual Stockholm Water Prize (SWP), first presented in 1991, which honours outstanding achievements in the sustainable use and protection of the world’s water resources, and aims to provide its winners - or laureates - with global acknowledgement and visibility.

Laureates should have made outstanding achievements relating to the conservation and protection of the world’s water resources. Achievements can be within appropriate fields of science, technology, education, public policy, or practice.

Candidates must be nominated for the competition in one or both of two categories:

  • Policy and Practices
  • Research

Eligible nominees are any individuals or organisations from any country that have:

  • Made outstanding contributions of lasting significance for the sustainable use and protection of the world’s water resources.
  • Achieved work of proven impact and/or great potential within the fields of science, technology, education, public policy, or practice related to sustainable use and protection of the world’s water resources.
  • Provided stimulation for further important contributions to the conservation and protection of water resources and to improved health and well-being of the planet's inhabitants and ecosystems.

Laureates receive a prize of SEK 1 million and a specially designed sculpture.

Initial nominations for the 2020 Prize must be submitted by 30 September 2019.

Nominators of shortlisted candidates will be invited to submit a more detailed nomination. The laureate will be announced during UN World Water Week in March 2020 and will receive their prize at the Royal Stockholm Water Prize Ceremony at Stockholm City Hall.
