Call for applications for the 4rd Kyoto World Water Grand Prize
from 1 to 31 August 2014

What is the Kyoto World Water Grand Prize?

The Kyoto World Water Grand Prize aims to find and develop outstanding grass-roots activities related to water issues around the world. The first Kyoto World Water Grant Prize was initiated by the City of Kyoto as host of the 3rd World Water Forum in 2003. It was first awarded on the occasion of the 4th World Water Forum. The second and third Kyoto World Water Grand Prizes were given to innovative organizations at the 5th and the 6th World Water Forums.

2014 is the last year of the MDGs. However, water-related issues have become more acute and have been aggravated as populations grow and economies develop.

Beginning with this, 4th edition of the prize, the Japan Water Forum, which organized the 3rd World Water Forum, will take over the City of Kyoto's role in  awarding the prize to an organization which is contributing to and cooperating in solving water problems around the world.
