2020-2021 UIAA MOUNTAIN PROTECTION AWARD
The UIAA Mountain Protection Award (MPA) was created in 2013. During its seven years of existence, the annual MPA has made a tangible difference to mountain lives, communities and the environment. It has enabled people to raise finances to build key infrastructures, conduct vital research and fulfil pending goals; it has provided an international showcase and communication platform for projects to raise awareness and exchange ideas and initiatives. Not only has it supported local communities, it has fostered its own global community. The Award celebrates innovation and a desire to make a difference.
You can help support the 2020-2021 MPA as a whole. Donations will be used to increase the prize money, allowing representatives of the prize runner-up and the best new initiative to be invited to the UIAA General Assembly together with the overall project winner. Alternatively, by using the comments box, you can also select a specific MPA nominee to support. Covid-19 is likely to have a significant impact on the financial resources of MPA projects. Your support could really make a difference.

The nomination phase for the 2020 Award is open. However, owing to Covid-19, the assessment phase and award ceremony will take place in 2021.
