The Collaboration Award recognises the importance of effective relationships and collaborations, within and across sectors and disciplines, in finding new opportunities to tackle difficult issues.
We are experiencing a move away from traditional NGO/donor links and "aid chains" to relationships across sectors and disciplines. This award focuses on emerging collaborations to highlight what is working and what is possible. It encourages stories of successful projects that demonstrate effective and even unexpected collaborations.
