The Stockholm Water Prize recognises women, men and organisations who have made outstanding contributions to the sustainable use and protection of the world’s water resources.
Since its inception in 1991, the prize has been selected by the Stockholm Water Prize Nominating Committee from a pool of professionals nominated by their peers. They welcome nominations from all parts of the world and strongly encourage the nomination of female candidates. Stockholm Water Prize Laureates have also represented a broad range of water-related activities, professions and scientific disciplines from all over the world.
Anyone can submit a nomination for the Stockholm Water Prize, however self-nominations or nominations by persons with direct professional or family ties to the candidate are not permitted. The initial nomination begins by submitting the name of the nominee along with a brief (500 words max.) statement of accomplishment.
The Stockholm Water Prize Nominating Committee carefully reviews all submissions and creates a short list of candidates. The nominators of short listed candidates are requested to provide further supporting information regarding their nominee.
