Projects that demonstrate project management achievement/excellence in delivering Humanitarian Aid Projects which have an international funding source.
Whilst it is recognized that international projects present unique challenges to any project team, including technical and geographical differences, along with issues of language and culture, the successful delivery of an overseas aid project requires particular project management skills and aptitude.
The Internationally Funded Humanitarian Aid Award is made to an overseas project (or program) where completion or a large milestone has been reached. The Award recognizes a project managed or supported by a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) that has brought a major benefit to a community. This award recognizes the special challenges international development and aid projects present to project teams and their stakeholders. Submissions for this award must also demonstrate that the objectives of the project/program have been achieved and proven benefits delivered.
Submissions in this category should demonstrate achievements in incorporating sustainability into project outcomes. Sustainability shall be measured against such guidelines as – the United Nations Global Compact’s ten principles (ie relating to aspects of people, planet, profits). For details refer: UN.
