The Dr Andreas Schild Memorial Mountain Prize 2022 is awarded every year to an individual, organization, or private sector entity based in the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) or beyond, which has demonstrated outstanding efforts enabling sustainable and resilient mountain development, outreach, or conserving cultural identity in the HKH region to benefit the environment or communities—particularly the poor, youth, or women.
Nominations will be accepted for those individuals, organizations, or companies that have advanced the mountain cause in the HKH through innovations in their various capacities and 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). 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.
Any individual, organization or private sector entity that has done outstanding work in the field of sustainable and resilient mountain development 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 in sustainable mountain development. 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. Application is also open to storytellers, photographers, filmmakers and artists.
The focus countries are the Hindu Kush Himalayas Region, which include the following countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Pakistan.
The prize is currently set at USD 2,500.
The nomination process is until 30 September 2022.
