The CIP consists of two main Prizes. The Wazo prize which is now closed awarded applicants with innovative ideas about how to address the climate information challenge. The aim of this prize was to incentivise people/organisations to come up with innovative solutions. The Tekeleza Prize, which is currently live, is a results based prize. It will award large cash prize to those applicants that have demonstrated the biggest impact with their solution over the period of the prize. Applicants who enter this prize will be expected to provide evidence of the impact their idea has had which will be verified before the award is given.
The Tekeleza Prize is the largest prize offered by the CIP and will be awarded to applicants who have demonstrated how they have used climate information to develop an innovation which has helped target communities build their resilience to climate change.
