Deadline for Application: January 30, 2017

Overview:

The purpose of the Green Star Awards (GSA) is to recognize outstanding individuals or organisations that have made remarkable efforts to prevent, prepare for, and respond to environmental emergencies – as well as to integrate environment with humanitarian action across the world. It is a joint initiative between Green Cross International (GCI), the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). The GSAs are intended to underline the nexus between the environmental impacts of natural disasters, technological accidents and complex emergencies, and their consequences for affected populations and providers of humanitarian assistance.

Award Criteria and Categories:

The biennial Green Star Awards recognize individuals, organizations, governments and companies who demonstrate achievements in prevention, preparedness and response to environmental emergencies.

Both the short-list and the final decision made by the Jury Panel will be made following a thematic approach based upon three categories:

Prevention and Preparedness
The efforts to increase awareness of communities, disaster responders, governments and industries on the impacts of environmental emergencies, to prevent environmental emergencies, and to improve preparedness for future disasters by building capacity at various levels.

Response
The efforts to ensure that effective and timely responses are provided in case of environmental emergency.

Environment and Humanitarian Actions
The efforts to consider environmental issues as part of a holistic response effort, by ensuring that environmental considerations are duly integrated in the humanitarian programme cycle – including strategy development, contingency planning, resource mobilization, performance monitoring and evaluation. 

**The 2017 edition of the Green Star Awards will be presented on 13 June 2017 in Nairobi, Kenya, as part of the 2017 Environment and Emergencies Forum (EEF). An event to honor the 2017 awardees will also be held during Green Cross International’s General Assembly in the fall of 2017. travel expenses to receive the award will be covered.
