The first ever Munich Re Foundation “Early Warning Prize” will be awarded on the opening day of the Third International Conference on Early Warning (27 March 2006) at an evening reception for conference participants hosted by Minister of State Gernot Erler.
Munich Re Foundation, a partner of the German Committee for Disaster Reduction (DKKV), awards its first prize to the early-warning project that best meets the needs of people at risk.
On 27 March 2006, the first day of the Third International Conference on Early Warning (EWC III), the Munich Re Foundation will award its first prize at an evening reception hosted by State Minister Gernot Erler (Federal Foreign Office) for the conference participants. The prize will be granted to the early-warning project that best meets the needs of people at risk.
The ceremony will take place at 7 pm at the BUNDESKUNSTHALLE (Art and Exhibition Hall) in Bonn (Friedrich-Ebert-Allee 4)
The prize, worth €50,000, will be presented to honour the early-warning project the Foundation considers best tailored to the needs of people at risk. The prize money is intended to be directly invested in the winning project that is clearly defined, effective and, if possible, can be easily reproduced elsewhere.
The winning project will be selected from a total of 130 projects submitted to ISDR (International Strategy for Disaster Reduction, Geneva).
