The UNESCO Sultan Qaboos Prize for Environmental Conservation recognises outstanding contributions to the management or preservation of the environment. This could include research, education, training or awareness raising or a noteworthy role in establishing and managing a protected area, such as Biosphere Reserves, UNESCO Global Geoparks and natural World Heritage Sites.

Between 1 and 3 winners are chosen every two years by the Director-General of UNESCO, following the recommendations of an international jury of experts.

The Prize is awarded at The World Science Forum where the prize winner/s, are invited to give a lecture on the subject of their award.
