Call for nominations open for Equator Prize 2024



New York – The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) led Equator Initiative releases a global call for nominations for the Equator Prize 2024. The nominations are open through 26 February 2024.  

Under the overarching theme of ‘Nature for Climate Action’, this 15th cycle of the Equator Prize will recognize and celebrate initiatives that are spearheaded by Indigenous Peoples and local communities, which offer impactful climate solutions, restore and sustainably manage nature and biodiversity, and identify actions promoting green and circular economy.


“For centuries, Indigenous Peoples and local communities have demonstrated remarkable stewardship of nature and climate with local solutions that are environmentally friendly. We are happy to announce the next round of nominations to promote and replicate such local actions. UNDP expresses its sincere gratitude to the government of Norway for the generous support, for us to be able to continue the tradition of celebrating the local heroes”, stated Marcos Neto, UN Assistant Secretary-General and Director of UNDP’s Bureau for Policy and Programme Support.


The ten Equator Prize winners will be announced on the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples. They will join a prestigious network of 285 innovative community-based organizations from 89 countries who have won the prize since 2002.
