New Delhi: The Zayed Sustainability Prize is open for submissions for its 2020 edition, said the organisers on Monday.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) global award for rewarding innovation, impact and inspiration in sustainable development solutions invites entries in one of its five categories: Health, Food, Energy, Water and Global High Schools.

"Entries will close on 30th May 2019. The winner of each category receives US$600,000 in prize funding," a statement from the organisers said.

"The Global High Schools category awards up to US$100,000 to each of six schools from the following six world regions."

Inspired by the sustainability and humanitarian legacy of the UAE's founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Prize has recognised winners' solutions that have delivered direct and indirect positive impact to more than 318 million people around the world since its establishment in 2008, the statement added.
