World Water Council - Water Prizes

The World Water Council has two prestigious water related Prizes, which are awarded on the occasion of the triennial World Water Forum: The King Hassan II Great World Water Prize and the Kyoto World Water Grand Prize.

King Hassan II Great World Water Prize
Working towards creating global awareness and taking concrete measures to promote the cause of water is the underlying rationale behind the awarding of the King Hassan II Great World Water Prize, a world-renowned and prestigious policy tool.

Jointly established by the Kingdom of Morocco and the World Water Council, this Prize pays tribute to the memory of His Majesty the late King Hassan II, and to his strategic vision for His country's sustainable integrated water resources management, in addressing the Kingdom's water security.

The Prize is awarded every three years on the occasion of the opening ceremony of the World Water Forum. During the Award Ceremony, a trophy and a certificate are awarded to the winner, thereby enjoying worldwide recognition and international exposure, along with a check of 100,000 USD.

Falling within the overarching framework of “Cooperation and solidarity in the fields of management and development of water resources”, this Sixth Edition of the Great Prize will reward the candidates making contributions around the specific theme of “Working towards greater solidarity and inclusion in order to ensure water security and climate justice.”

Kyoto World Water Grand Prize
The Kyoto World Water Grand Prize is an international award jointly organized by the Japan Water Forum and the World Water Council. This 5th edition will reward grass-roots organizations from developing countries involved in the field of water.

This prestigious prize aims to find and develop outstanding grass-roots activities related to water issues around the world. These activities may include projects, awareness-raising campaigns and promotion of participatory process on water-related issues such as water supply and sanitation, water-related diseases, irrigation, drainage, dams, river and lake basins, wetlands, groundwater, poverty, gender and/or ethnic equity, capacity building, community participation, poverty reduction and more.

The selection process for the 5th Prize will focus particularly on organizations with a record of innovative and expandable grassroots activities that may serve as a model for others. Consideration will also be given to the contents of the project, which is to be funded by the grant, including the degree of problem-solving, cost-effectiveness, sustainability and expandability.
