2005 Swiss Mountain Water Award launched

Dec 16, 2004
The Governmental Conference of Alpine Cantons (GCAC) has launched the Swiss Mountain Water Award, which is endowed with a total of CHF 50,000. The objective of the competition is to initiate and promote practical water projects capable of making a substantial contribution to increased net output in the mountain areas of Switzerland in commercial, ecological, social and/or institutional terms.
The competition is open to all individuals and institutions from Switzerland and abroad. Closing date for submissions is 28 February.
The Swiss Mountain Water Award is being organized in the framework of the Mountain Water Network (MWN), which was established by the GCAC in the United Nations Year of Fresh Water in 2003 to run projects in support of networking and the exchange of knowledge and to strengthen the output chain in the mountain regions. The MWN's objective is to promote partnerships between the business, political and cultural communities and the public sector, as well as between regional, national and international institutions.
