SIWI has been named the 2012 Prince Albert II of Monaco Water Award laureate in recognition of its "high contributions on water issues".
The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation was established in 2006 to support concrete action to protect the environment and for sustainable development. Since 2008, the foundation presents annual awards to honour key international figures and organisations for exemplary work in three key areas: climate change, biodiversity and water. Prof. Malin Falkenmark, Senior Scientific Advisor at SIWI, received the Prince Albert II of Monaco Water and Desertification Award in 2010 for her outstanding contributions to scientific understanding of regional and global water scarcity. SIWI is the first organisation to receive the prize.
