Each year, the Committee for the United Nations Population Award presents an award to an individual(s) and/or institution(s) in recognition of outstanding contributions to increasing the awareness of population questions and to their solution.

The Award, which was established by the General Assembly in November 1981, in resolution 36/201, and was first presented in 1983, consists of a gold medal, a diploma and a monetary prize.


Written nominations for the Award may be received from:

  • Governments of Members States;
  • Intergovernmental organizations engaged in population-related activities;
  • Population-related non-governmental organizations having consultative status with the United Nations;
  • University professors of population or population-related institutions; and
  • Laureates of the Award.

    Each nominator is asked to submit no more than one nomination, either for an individual or for an institution.

    Nominations for the award are accepted through 1 December of each year.
