The Notre Dame Global Adaptation Index (ND-GAIN) at the University of Notre Dame is continuing to accept applications for the ND-GAIN Corporate Adaptation Prize, which recognizes projects that have made measurable contributions in creating resilience or adaptation to climate change, until July 31 (Friday).
Past winners of the prize include PepsiCo, Novartis, Ushahidi, Monsanto and Engineers Without Borders.
This year’s winners will demonstrate meaningful impacts in an emerging economy that decrease vulnerability and increase readiness by enhancing food security, water access, sanitation, coastal protection, ecosystem services, human habitats, infrastructure resiliency or human health, or by improving economic, social or governance function.
Projects must be led by either a multinational corporation or a local corporation working on a project in a lower income country and must include collaboration with local partners. Project applications will be judged on their measurable adaptation impact, scalability (relative within their category — multinational or local corporations) and market impact. Prize winners will also be consistent with the University of Notre Dame’s mission.
