ICT for Mountain Development Award

On the occasion of the World Environment Day (WED), ICIMOD is pleased to launch the ‘ICT for Mountain Development Award’ that recognizes innovations in information and communications technology for Development (ICTD) that can help promote mountain development and environmental conservation. The award(s) will be announced on International Mountain Day (IMD), 11 December.

Although ICT for Development is increasingly being used across the world, including in some parts of the Hindu Kush Himalayan region (HKH), we do not yet have a comprehensive picture of its use, application and proliferation in the mountain context of HKH. The annual ICT for Mountain Development Award  would allow us and others working in this area to learn where, how and what is being done in the region in terms of ICT and mountain development. It will also help different thematic programmes build partnerships and support each other’s work in the region using ICT as an added enabler for mountain development. The award reflects the importance ICIMOD places on this emerging area of ICT for Development and gives continuity to ICIMOD’s efforts in this area.

Through this initiative, key institutions and development practitioners in ICT for Development in the region can also be identified. Submissions from the applicants will bring to light the creative potential within the ICT for Development sector and enable us to share and promote good practices for the benefit of mountain communities. The award will thus have a positive multiplier effect.

A panel of judges will select winners/awardees after an initial screening and evaluation process. Each awardee will receive a prize and a certificate of recognition.

Who can participate ?
The call is open to anyone residing in any part of the world as long as the project case/work is relevant to the context of HKH. Individuals, entrepreneurs, development practitioners and institutions are all eligible to submit their work.
