Competition in honor of 25th Anniversary of Global Water Partnership

“Partnership as a driving force for achieving water security” is the motto of the competition organized by the Global Water Partnership for Central Asia and Caucasus to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Global Water Partnership.

We invite both professional journalists and everyone whose publications and photographs, broadcast audio and video materials (reports, interviews and any other journalistic materials) posted in the “paper” and electronic media, contribute to strengthening the partnership in water resources management.

Your work will become known to a wide range of specialists and to civil society in our region, which includes Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. This is a good chance in the future to establish partnerships and take part in joint projects to promote the principles of public involvement and cooperation in water resources management.

The content should meet the following modalities:

  • from negative to positive language,
  • from confrontation to cooperation,
  • from a description of problems, to a description of ways to solve problems and practical actions (projects),
  • from general phrases, cliches and labels to specific (not global) ideas, extremely precise professional formulations and rejection of false negative stereotypes.

 The winners will be selected in five nominations:

• Best publication in print media

• Best radio broadcast

• Best TV show

• Best online publication

• Best Photography (two podcasts: professional photography and “shot with a smartphone”)


Materials should be issued from March 22 to October 22, 2021 on one of the following topics:

1. Improving approaches to water resources management in the context of adaptation to climate change and environmental protection;

2. Progress in ensuring access to safe drinking water and sanitation;
