The GAIN Prizes are given to recognize those organizations and entrepreneurs that are working on innovative projects and successfully tested technologies that will help the most vulnerable adapt to the changing global climate, GAIN’s founding mission. These Prizes, which were awarded at the GAIN Annual Reception May 9, honor the shoulder-to-shoulder work with communities through a monetary award and recognition to promote continued development of innovative adaptation solutions.
