> 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
