Enter the 2016 Emerging River Professional Award!
The Emerging River Professional Award (ERPA) is open to all river professionals who have been working in their field for 10 years or less and who have demonstrated exceptional and measurable achievements in rivers, basins or river-dependent communities.
Generously sponsored by OceanGold Corporation and managed by the International WaterCentre Alumni Network (IWCAN), ERPA finalists will be afforded the opportunity to attend the 19th International RiverSymposium to be held in New Delhi, India 12-14 September 2016 to present the outcomes of their work. The winner will be announced at the Riverprize Gala Dinner on Tuesday 13 September, and will receive a cash prize of AU$500.
Recognising the wide range of professionals that contribute to the future of our rivers, ERPA is open to professionals from all disciplines – whether scientists, policy makers or on-ground river managers. While teams are essential in all facets of river management, this award focuses on celebrating individual achievements, and rewarding hard work, dedication, innovation, and leadership.
Finalists will be selected through the evaluation of written submissions and oral presentations demonstrating leadership and project achievements or showcasing significant research as part of a Masters or PhD program.
If you feel that you have undertaken a noteworthy work in the area of river management, or you know someone who deserves recognition for his or her achievement you can download the call for entries and application form here.
