STAGE 1 - Protsahan Prize (CLOSED)

The Protsahan Prize will recognise successful initiatives that have supported adaptation to climate change among the poorest and most vulnerable groups in Nepal, and reward innovative plans to expand them (scale-up). Applicants will need to present a plan showing how they can expand the reach of their initiative by using new and innovative ways of working. These ideas should be new, and not part of an already funded activity. Submissions will be judged by an independent panel. 

The prize was launched on the 5th of May 2016. It was awarded in December 2016.

The winners received a share of a GBP 150,000 prize purse.
