Call for Submissions for the ICT Mountain Development Award 2018

To mark World Environment Day 2018, ICIMOD is pleased to launch the ICT for Mountain Development Award 2018 on 5 June for the fifth consecutive year. The award recognizes innovations, use and applications of Information and Communications Technology for Development (ICTD) that help to promote mountain development and environmental conservation. More details are given below and also available on our website at www.icimod.org/ict4md.

ICT for Development is increasingly being used across the world, including in some parts of the Hindu Kush Himalayan region (HKH). However, we do not yet have a comprehensive picture of its use, application and proliferation in the mountain environment context.  We hope that through this annual ICT for Mountain Development Award, we will be able to learn more about its usage and application – where, how and what is being done in the region to benefit mountain communities.

All forms of ICT (mobile, radio, Internet, digital content, blogs, robotics, multimedia, applications etc.) relevant to mountain development and environmental conservation are eligible for submission. In other words, the basic criteria is that the ICT for Development initiative should be one that has been applied in the HKH region, has a clear focus on mountain development or mountain environment, and  has made an impact on the ground.

The award(s) will be announced on the occasion of International Mountain Day (IMD), 11 December 2018. Winners will receive prizes along with a certificate of recognition.

We look forward to your active participation and receiving your submissions. Please note that our deadline is Wednesday, 30 November 2018.

Please refer to the www.icimod.org/ict4md  for further details.
