The Water ChangeMaker Awards, launched on World Water Day 2020 (March 22), is a new initiative of about 20 partner organisations, convened by the Global Water Partnership (GWP) in support to the UNFCCC Resilience Frontiers Initiative. The Water ChangeMaker Awards celebrate teams and organisations which have shaped decisions about safeguarding water that helped build climate resilience. 

Beyond celebrating Awardees and their teams, the submissions will provide a basis for creating learning communities of topic-specific groups to collaborate and learn from each other. Finalist and Winner experiences will also be included in the GWP ToolBox.

Submissions are welcome in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish and are open until 7 June 2020. The winning initiatives will be honoured at an award ceremony held in 2021 during COP26 in Glasgow.
