Until 2020 we at first funded projects and solutions to sustainably manage watersheds and later supported water entrepreneurs.
Our International ReSource Award fostered entrepreneurial thinking and leadership in managing water sustainably in low- and middle-income countries. Drawing on more than a decade’s experience focusing on sustainable watershed management, we designed the programme both to recognise past success and to help start-ups develop and scale up promising approaches.
The aim of the ReSource Award was to raise awareness of the ecological, social and economic importance of protecting vulnerable water sources in developing and emerging countries by recognising projects that demonstrate innovative, practical and scalable solutions.
With the Entrepreneurs for Resilience Award, we continue to support social entrepreneurs and benefit from the learnings of the ReSource Award program, which are gathered in a comprehensive report.
