Over 400 submissions from over 100 UN member states were nominated in this year´s WSA contest, the competition was high and the selection process highly competitive. With our nomination for the WSA, we qualified for being reviewed by an international Jury, who met for the final round of evaluations last week in Accra, Ghana. The jurors did lots of research, engaged in passionate discussions and worked long evenings – all to select the 40 WSA winners 2018.
Focussing foremost on the content and the impact in their local communities, not only the technical finesse and design, WSA assembled international experts from all regions and fields to select the 40 winners. The final jury phase concluded in an on-site three days meeting in Accra, Ghana of 16 international high level experts, deciding in a democratic and transparent process on the most powerful and content rich solutions 2018.
