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.
