“Angel for Sustainable Development” Global Awards

    Description
    Description
    To stimulate efforts and attract wider number of qualified actors to participate in the global process of achieving the newly-created sustainable development goals (SDGs), the World Organization for Development (WOD) will offer a series of global awards called “Angel for Sustainable Development”. These awards will celebrate winners in seven categories that correlate with 11 SDG. Award ceremonies will be held in cooperation with and under the auspices of UN bodies responsible for implementing the SDGs.
    Expected Impact

    The “Angel for Sustainable Development” award series will take place on a yearly basis, so seven different ceremonies will be held throughout the year. Due to the universal nature of the SDGs, the award ceremonies will be held in different countries throughout the world. Subcategories of the global Award “Angel for Sustainable Development” are as follows:1. Award “Investment Angel”2. Award “Innovation Angel”3. Award “Environment Angel”4. Award “Technological Angel”5. Award “Angel for Global Prosperity”6. Award “Empowering Women Angel”7. Award “Angel for World’s Peace”During the preparation phase, WOD-Research, an independent macroeconomic analytical agency, will gather all official UN statistics and other data available, and processes all the information on the latest state of the implementation of the SDGs around the globe. At the same time, the WOD PR team will attract as much attention as possible to the SDGs implementation, and encourage representatives of civil society, business sector to participate in determination of the award winners. The main criteria to select the location where the ceremonies will take place is their potential to bring together representatives from the host country’s government, business, and NGOs working (or interested in becoming involved) with UN bodies. The format of the ceremonies may change, but they will always be featured in the world's leading media sources.

    Capacity

    Technology transfer and capacity building will be a vital part of the project. During the preparation, implementation and post-support stages of the award ceremonies, detailed examinations of successful executions of SDG projects throughout the world will be conducted in cooperation with the UN bodies. The full analytical research will be presented in a form of "practical guidelines" that describe best practices and how they can be applied to replicate the work in other areas of our planet. Also, all actors involved in successful SDG projects will be widely publicized and best practices and other resources will be transferred by visual demonstration for an international audience.

    Governed

    The President of the World Organization for Development, Robert Abdullin, will be personally overlooking and organizing the nominating committees. UN official statistical data and UN representatives’ opinion will be used as a starting point to determine the award winners. Also, an independent macroeconomic analytical agency, WOD-Research, will play a crucial role in obtaining data to select the nominees. Note* World Organization for Development is a new name of the World Organization of Creditors (since 2015)
