Who is interested to be nominated?

> Dear Sascha Gabizon,
> Greetings from the UNDP Equator Initiative in New York.
> We recently launched our global call for nominations for the Equator Prize 
> 2015.
> Given your work at Women in Europe for a Common Future (WECF) and your 
> focus on sustainable development and natural resource management issues, 
> we thought you might be well positioned to nominate eligible groups or get 
> this into the hands of interested organizations.
> The Equator Prize 2015 will honor 20 outstanding local and indigenous 
> community initiatives that are reducing poverty, protecting nature, and 
> strengthening resilience in the face of climate change.
> This cycle of the award has the theme empowerment, rights, and 
> partnerships for local climate action and an emphasis on indigenous 
> peoples and local communities that are:
> Protecting, restoring and sustainably managing forests
> Promoting sustainable agriculture and food security
> Advancing community-based adaptation to climate change
> Protecting and securing rights to communal lands, territories and natural 
> resources
> Forging innovative partnerships for sustainable development
> Each winning initiative will receive US$ 10,000 and be supported to 
> participate in a series of special events at the UN Climate Change 
> Conference in Paris, France in December 2015.
> We hope to appeal for your support in two key areas:
> Nominate communities that are innovating and advancing creative solutions 
> related to climate change and sustainable development
> Circulate this announcement to your partners and contacts, encouraging 
> them to submit nominations and share with their networks
> Please find the official announcement attached here in English. It 
> contains all the relevant information on eligibility requirements, 
> selection criteria and how to nominate. Nomination forms and outreach 
> materials are available in 15 different languages here 
> <http://equatorinitiative.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=889&Itemid=1093&lang=en>.
> Are there groups that are part of your project portfolio whom you think 
> would be strong candidates for the Equator Prize 2015?
> A video introducing the Equator Prize is available here 
> <https://vimeo.com/107394857>, and videos on a few Equator Prize 2014 
> winners are available here <https://vimeo.com/107275138> (Ecuador), here

> is much shorter than in previous rounds — the nomination deadline is 27 
> May 2015.
> Many thanks in advance for your support. I can imagine you get many 
> requests similar to this every day, so we are truly grateful for whatever 
> attention you are able to bring to this call for nominations.
> Very best regards,
> Martin
