The finals took place during the international conference Deltas in Times of Climate Change II in Rotterdam on 25 September 2014.

The winners received a cash price of € 25.000.

"I did my research project on the feasibility of waste water reuse as climate adaptation measure for agriculture sector in Mekong Delta of Vietnam", said Priska. "It is one of the world’s most prone regions to climate change. There I identified so much potential for using existing water resource for irrigation water."
