The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) announced the winners of the 2022 Green City Awards at the International Union for Conservation of Nature Leaders Forum in Jeju, Republic of Korea on Oct. 14, 2022. The most prestigious award of the Inaugural 2022 edition, the Grand Winner, was presented to the city who was voted by the jury to demonstrate the highest capacity for influence, replicability, and scope to inspire change in their entry.

In making their decision, members of the jury were invited to consider the following question:

“The AIPH World Green City Awards 2022 enables winning cities to achieve greater recognition for their inspiring initiatives – in light of this, which entry do you feel may have the biggest transformational impact?”

The 2022 Grand Winner is the City of Hyderabad, India for their entry: Green Garland to the State of Telangana.

“AIPH celebrates this fantastic achievement for the City of Hyderabad,” Tim Briercliffe, Secretary General, AIPH, said. “We are proud to showcase their inspiring urban greening work. With this global recognition, we can confidently say that Hyderabad is a world leader in nature-oriented approaches to city design, form, and function. The innovation, ambition, and inspiring action demonstrated in the city’s entry leaves a powerful legacy for other cities from around the world to aspire to.”
