The Prize, subtitled “Contributing to the Millennium Development Goals through grassroots initiatives”, aims to give those working on water-related issues at the grassroots level the opportunity to present their work to the global water community, present at the 5th World Water Forum in Istanbul, in March 2009.
Through the Prize, around 30 applicants will be selected and funded to attend the 5th World Water Forum. 10 finalists will be selected by an International Panel of Judges to compete for the prize money of 3 million JPY (around 28,000 USD). The prize money is used to continue the winning activities. All applications will be collected in a database of water-related actions from around the world that will be distributed to the expected 20,000 participants at the 5th World Water Forum.
