Call for Applications: Water Management Resilience Award

The Swiss Re Foundation recently announced the launch of its ReSource Award for 2019.

The International ReSource Award for resilience in water management is a prize acknowledging social entrepreneurial thinking and leadership in implementing the principles of sustainability in water management.

The prize builds on more than 10 years of experience in supporting outstanding partners heading for sustainable watershed management. An international jury awards USD $150,000 to new social entrepreneurial initiatives driving sustainable water management practices. The prize combines financial and non-financial contributions (coaching/expert advice).

With this award, the Swiss Re Foundation aims at contributing to the advancement of water resilience in low, lower-middle, and upper-middle-income countries.

Charities, non-profit organizations and revenue-generating social enterprises are invited to submit proposals by March 16, 2018 for novel, entrepreneurial solutions in sustainable water management practices.
