The 2017 Stroud Award for Freshwater Excellence will be presented to His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco

Presented at The Water’s Edge gala each year since 2011, the Stroud Award for Freshwater Excellence, also known as the SAFE Water Award, is a prestigious award for outstanding achievement in freshwater-related activities. Honorees represent regions and watersheds from around the world and a broad range of freshwater-related activities, professions, and scientific disciplines.

Commitment to Fresh Water

Prince Albert II has given his effort and support to the availability of clean fresh water, among other environmental issues.

Founded in 2006, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation is committed to protecting the environment and promoting life in an ecofriendly, global way. One of its three principal domains of action is to manage water resources and combat desertification.

“I decided to set up a foundation whose purpose is to protect the environment and to encourage sustainable development. By definition, this is a common global challenge that requires urgent and concrete action in response to three major environmental issues: climate change, biodiversity, and water.”

Learn more about Prince Albert and his outstanding commitment to the environment and our natural resources.
