reminder call for the ICT for Mountain Development Award 2016

award recognizes innovations, use and applications of Information and Communications Technology for Development (ICTD) that help to promote mountain development and environmental conservation. More details are available on our website at  

ICT for Development is increasingly being used across the world, including in some parts of the Hindu Kush Himalayan region (HKH). However, we do not yet have a comprehensive picture of its use, application and proliferation in the mountain environment context.  We hope that through this annual ICT for Mountain Development Award, we will be able to learn more about its usage and application - where, how and what is being done in the region to benefit mountain communities.

All forms of ICT (mobile, radio, Internet, digital content, blogs, robotics, multimedia, etc.) relevant to mountain development and environmental conservation are eligible for submission. In other words, the basic criteria is that the ICT for Development initiative should be one that has been applied in the HKH region, has a clear focus on mountain development or mountain environment, and  has made an impact on the ground.

The award(s) will be announced on the occasion of International Mountain Day (IMD), 11 December 2016. Winners will receive prizes along with a certificate of recognition.

As the deadline of Wednesday, 30 November 2016 is fast approaching, we look forward to your active participation and receiving your submissions.

Please feel free to pass this information to those who may be interested.
