The World Academy of Science (TWAS): Inviting applications for ‘TWAS─Samira Omar Innovation for Sustainability Prize’ to recognize scientists from Least Developed Countries (LDCs).

Funding brief: This new annual prize, named after the TWAS Fellow Samira Omar, will recognize scientists from Least Developed Countries (LDCs). It carries a cash award of USD 4,000 generously provided by Professor Omar. The prize will honor scientists working in an area relevant to sustainability.

Our planet, and therefore our existence, faces several challenges: world population, food security, climate change, biodiversity loss, water scarcity/poor sanitation, energy resources. Sustainability involves considering the relationship between the finite resources of the planet and the way of life adopted by humans: in what way can our existence be maintained and at what level?

Sustainability is at the forefront of many discussions at the international scene. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals released by the UN in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda underlie that we must become aware of the fact that we are compromising the future of generations to come. The SDGs may well represent the best attempt at addressing sustainability issues at a global scale.

The “Innovation for Sustainability” Prize will reward scientists for their contribution in an area, albeit multidisciplinary, directly relevant to the science of sustainability.

The 2018 prize will be awarded to a scientist living and working in an LDC during the last two years immediately prior to his/her nomination, based on scientific achievements in the thematic area of Plastic: Degradation, pollution and microplastics.

Field: The thematic area for the 2018 prize is Plastic: Degradation, pollution and microplastics.
