Deadline: 15 January 2022

The UNHCR’s NGO Innovation Award (“the Award”) celebrates the efforts and accomplishments of NGOs who developed innovative approaches for protection and delivery of services to refugees and other persons of concern to UNHCR.

UNHCR, via this Award, seeks to identify and recognize the new and creative approaches that can result in better protection and delivery of service to the communities we serve and amplify the acts of solidarity and innovation in an age of increasing uncertainty and disruption.

The 2022 Award will focus on women-led organizations and girl-led organizations (WLOs) working with or supporting refugees, internally displaced persons, returnees, stateless persons and host communities.  The Award will prioritize the organizations  created or led by refugees and other persons of concern to UNHCR, but is also open to other community-based women-led organizations working in forced displacement context. This focus on women-led organizations seeks to award organizations that hold strong organizational values, principles, and commitments to gender equality and accountability to women and girls, as well as those that promote women in positions of leadership.
