The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Water Award recognizes individuals, pioneering organisations, and research centres, for their innovative models that produce clean water using renewable energy.

A renewable energy source includes solar, wind, biomass, ocean, gradient salinity and geothermal technologies. It excludes nuclear energy and carbon capture and storage systems.

The 4th Cycle of the Award is now open. The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Water Award supports research and development of new and innovative technologies that produce, distribute, store, monitor, desalinate and purify water using renewable energy to support the global position of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in developing solutions for challenges that are faced by poverty- and disaster-stricken communities worldwide.

The biennial Award encourages leading corporations, research centres, institutions, the youth and innovators from across the world to compete in finding sustainable and innovative solutions to the problem of water scarcity. Until today and in three cycles, we awarded bright minds from around the world for their pioneering in water desalination and purification systems to overcome the world’s water crisis.

The Award is comprised of 4 main categories that target pioneering organisations, research centres, individuals, educational institutions, and innovators from all around the world to motivate participants to come up with innovative, renewable energy powered solutions with the aim to either produce, distribute, store, monitor, desalinate and/or purify water:

The cash awards will be awarded at the sole discretion of UAE Water Aid Foundation (Suqia), based on the decision of the Technical Committee and the endorsement by the Executive Committee. There is no alternative to the cash Award.

Applications will be accepted until Tuesday 30 April 2024, Midnight UAE time (15:00 Colombian time)
