“Water for Life” UN-Water Best Practices Award
The United Nations Office to Support the International Decade for Action “Water for Life” 2005-2015/UN-Water Decade Programme on Advocacy and Communication (UNW-DPAC) and the UN World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP) are pleased to announce the launch of the 4th edition of the ‘Water for Life’ UN-Water Best Practices Award.
The purpose of the Award is to promote efforts to fulfil international commitments made on water and water-related issues by 2015 through recognition of outstanding best practices that can ensure the long-term sustainable management of water resources and contribute to the achievement of internationally agreed goals and targets contained in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Agenda 21 and the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation.
The Award is open to projects or programmes achieving particularly effective results in the field of water management or in raising awareness in water issues.
The prize is awarded yearly in two categories, one in ‘best water management practices’ and another one in ‘best participatory, communication, awareness-raising and education practices’.
This edition’s focus is on Water and Energy as World Water Day 2014 is dedicated to this important issue. Only best practices/projects which have considered this theme will be eligible.
Application period is open from 21 June to 15 September 2013.
