Funding brief: ICIMOD is pleased to launch the ‘ICT for Mountain Development Award 2018’ that recognizes innovations in information and communications technology for Development (ICTD) that can help promote mountain development and environmental conservation. The award(s) will be announced on International Mountain Day (IMD), 11th, December, 2018.
Although ICT for Development is increasingly being used across the world, including in some parts of the Hindu Kush Himalayan region (HKH), they do not yet have a comprehensive picture of its use, application and proliferation in the mountain context of HKH. The annual ICT for Mountain Development Award would allow us and others working in this area to learn where, how and what is being done in the region in terms of ICT and mountain development. It will also help different thematic programmes build partnerships and support each other’s work in the region using ICT as an added enabler for mountain development. The award reflects the importance ICIMOD places on this emerging area of ICT for Development and gives continuity to ICIMOD’s efforts in this area.
Categories: Awards will be given in a number of categories. For this year, there will be awards in the current four thematic work areas of ICIMOD (livelihoods, water and air, ecosystem services, and geospatial solutions). There could also be other categories such as ‘audience choice award’ and/or ‘special mentions award’. While the applicants are required to choose one of the broad categories, including ‘others’, they can focus on a specific work area while making the submission, e.g., mountain agriculture, disaster management, forestry, environment, mountain tourism, open data, inclusion, etc. The same work cannot be submitted in multiple categories.
● To recognize innovations in ICT for Development that can promote mountain development and environmental conservation;
● To identify key institutions and practitioners working in ICT for Development and help build partnerships through ICIMOD’s regional programmes;
● To showcase and share innovative work being done in the interest of mountain communities.
