ICIMOD Mountain Prize 2021

In 2021, the focus of the award will be exclusively on work related to the COVID pandemic – any activity or approach carried out in pandemic-related response aimed at building the resilience of HKH communities.

Nominations will be accepted for those individuals, organizations, or companies that have worked with HKH communities through innovations in their various capacities and brought about positive tangible change on the ground. ICIMOD issues a first call for nominations in June of every year. It awards the Prize and Honorable Mentions to the deserving nominees on December 11 (International Mountain Day).

Who can be nominated?

  • Any individual, organization or private sector entity that has done outstanding pandemic-related response work in the HKH is eligible for the prize and can be nominated (hereafter referred to as ‘nominee’).

  • The nominee must have made a demonstrable impact.

  • While they would like to particularly acknowledge the efforts of individuals or entities that have worked in line with ICIMOD’s mandate, this is not a pre-condition for the award.

Who can nominate?

  • Any individual can nominate any organization or a private sector entity or another individual that meets the eligibility criteria outlined under a) above, including his/her own organization or company, for the prize. They expect the said individual (hereafter referred to as ‘nominator’) to be very familiar with the work of the organization or company or individual he/she is nominating. The nominator should nominate only after receiving the consent of the nominee (head of the entity in case of an organization or company).

  • Self-nomination (nominating one-self for the prize) is not permitted and the nominator may nominate only once.
