On the occasion of International Women's Day 8 March 2006 on the theme: "Women in Decision Making: Meeting Challenges, Creating Change", UNEP is paying tribute to the contributions of women to environmental conservation and management.

This website introduces a database of influential women in the field of the environment who UNEP believes should be honoured and whose work should be recognized.

UNEP invites individuals and organizations to add to this list by nominating women who they feel have made a significant and recognized contribution, nationally, regionally or globally, to the field of the environment. Eventually, UNEP would like to produce a comprehensive Who's Who of Women and the Environment.

Persons can propose themselves, or they may choose to nominate a third party. Eligibility will be based on proven achievements.

Before submitting their nominations, nominators are advised to peruse the database to confirm that the nominee is not already included.

Nominators are required to complete and submit the nomination form, which is available both online and in hard copy. To obtain a hard copy, please contact Ms. Rajinder Sian at the following e-mail address rajinder.sian@unep.org .
