The activities can be within the fields of aid, awareness building and education, engineering, management, or science. Any activity or actor which contributes broadly to the availability, conservation and protection of the world’s water resources, and to improved water conditions which contribute to the health of the planet’s inhabitants and ecosystems, is eligible to be nominated. The Stockholm Water Prize enjoys Royal Patronage and includes a $US 150,000 award, and a crystal Orrefors sculpture.  Nomination forms and information is available on the Prize’s website at www.siwi.org.
