On May 8-9 118 finalists will compete for US$4 million in grants at the 2006 Global Development Marketplace. This year's theme, Innovations in Water, Sanitation and Energy Services for Poor People, reflects the commitment to suport and incubate ideas that provide clean water supply, sanitation, and energy services to poor communities in developing countries. Finalist proposals range from solar-powered water filters, to creative methods for rural refrigeration and power generation, to the provision of locally-produced biomass briquettes as alternatives to fuelwood. Come and meet the finalists from 55 countries, and vote for your favorite project! To visit the Marketplace, pre-register for free by May 3rd.
