The Japan Water Forum, in collaboration with the World Water Council (WWC) and the City of Kyoto, will hold this award to recognize grassroots organizations that have been engaged in excellent activities to address water issues in developing countries. The winning organization will be awarded 2 million yen and the award ceremony is planned to take place during the 10th World Water Forum in Bali, Indonesia.
The purpose of the “Kyoto World Water Grand Prize” is to honor grassroots organizations that contribute to the future of developing countries by carrying out activities related to water. By recognizing and promoting these grassroots activities on a global scale, we aim to raise awareness of the importance of grassroots efforts.
Water is essential for our livelihoods, and sustainable water resource management is a global challenge. In this context, the role played by grassroots organizations is extremely important, and we are committed to contributing to the resolution of water issues through our support.
