UN Global Climate Action Awards 2021 (Fully Funded)
The annual award programme, run by United Nations Climate Change since 2011, recognizes the world’s most innovative, scalable and replicable examples of action to tackle climate change.
This year’s awards will showcase people and projects taking bold and effective climate action in the areas of climate neutrality, innovative climate finance and climate leadership.
The 2021 award winners will be celebrated at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 26) in Glasgow, Scotland, in November – the most important climate conference since the Paris Agreement was adopted in 2015.
This year also marks the 10th anniversary of the award programme and its efforts to demonstrate that climate action is underway around the world.
A special new award category called ‘Climate Leaders’ has been added for 2021. It will recognize transformational and replicable government action and ambition at any level (national, regional, city, town, etc.), helping to strengthen the case for the increased climate action and ambition that is urgently needed to ensure the world can limit the increase in global average temperature rise this century to 1.5 degrees Celsius and to build resilience to climate change.
