Since its establishment in 1999, the prize has been known as AGFUND International Prize for Pioneering Human Development Projects. Following the passing away of His Royal Highness Prince Talal bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, founder of AGFUND, in December 2018, the AGFUND’s Board of Directors decided to rename the prize after the late Prince Talal. This decision was taken to commemorate his lifelong dedication to the service of human development and poverty alleviation through AGFUND and the other institutions he established. Hence, the prize new name is “Prince Talal International Prize for Human Development”.
It is an annual prize established in 1999 by the Arab Gulf Programme for Development (AGFUND), with the aim of inciting and encouraging innovation and creativity in the areas of human development. The idea of the Prize was stemmed from AGFUND’s approach to enhance development performance and support key development projects in order to achieve the goal of sustainability and investment in people. In this sense, Prince Talal International Prize is considered to be an important tool to identify successful development projects, reward them and disseminate their innovative ideas to best contribute to the improvement of development work. It is also an innovative approach and a strategic instrument to exchange successful experiences to strengthen the mechanisms of development cooperation and project funding with special emphasis on the most prominent factors that militate against development and affect the vulnerable groups, particularly women and children in developing countries. These include poverty, social exclusion, socio-economic marginalization, education and health.
Objectives are: (1) Support the distinguished efforts aiming at the promotion and development of the concepts and dimensions of human development; (2) Reproduce and disseminate the successful project experiences; (3) Highlight the best practices, which aim to improve the living conditions of the poor and disadvantaged with particular emphasis on women and children; and (4) Enhance the exchange of experiences and develop better mechanisms to find solutions to the problems of poverty, marginalization and socioeconomic exclusion of vulnerable groups.
No one can nominate his/her or its project. However, each of the following entities is eligible, as third party, to nominate for the Prize; UN organizations, regional, international and national NGOs, governments agencies, public institutions, universities and research centers, syndicates and experts in the field.
Actions can take place worldwide.
The Prince Talal International Prize amount is $1,000,000. Prize amounts range from $100,000 to $400,000 depending on each category.
Nominations for Prince Talal International Prize shall be made by the project implementing agency by filling out the (ONLINE) nomination form on AGFUND. The deadline for receiving nominations is 15 December 2022.
