Advocating for indigenous rights

Summary

Green Empowerment's work is rooted in community organizing and advocating for indigenous rights through the development of local micro-hydro electrical systems and watershed conservation work.
A grassroots base in Malaysia’s indigenous movement is further supported by our participation in policy conversations at the national level to push for clean development solutions.

Additional Information

The indigenous people of Borneo are not only guardians of forests that sequester vast stores of carbon and biodiversity; they also hold critical knowledge that allows them to live sustainably within the bounds of their forests and connected natural resources.
