ICCG awards the winner of 2015 Best Climate Practices Contest on "Climate Change and Water Availability for Food Production"



The International Center for Climate Governance is pleased to announce the winner of this year's Best Climate Practices award.

The winning project was elected by combining the results of the online voting conducted in September and the assessments of the international Expert Panel, this year featuring Michel Camdessus (Chair of FEEM advisory board); Carlo Carraro (ICCG and Ca’Foscari University of Venice); Raffaello Cervigni (World Bank); Frank Convery (University College Dublin); Alberto Garrido (Universidad Politécnica, Madrid).

In October the Expert Panel agreed on the final ranking, electing the project “A multifunctional greenhouse to grow food and collect water” as the winner of 2015 Best Climate Practices Award.

The project is developed by Roots Up, a young organization based in Northern Ethiopia, in collaboration with the University of Gondar. They will receive the prize of 10000 Euros to build their activity up. For more information, visit the “Multifunctional Greenhouse” page on the BCP observatory or go to the project's website.

The winner will be awarded on October 23, 2015, during a special conference organized by ICCG in Milano, Italy, at Cascina Triulza, Expo Milano 2015. For more information about the event please visit this page.
