Edward Loure wins Goldman Environmental Prize

Edward Loure and his grassroots organisation Ujamaa Community Resource Team (UCRT) – a partner of CELEP – have pioneered an approach that gives land titles to indigenous communities – instead of individuals – in northern Tanzania, ensuring the environmental stewardship of the pastoral land for future generations.

Goldman Environmental Prize recipients focus on protecting endangered ecosystems and species, combating destructive development projects, promoting sustainability, influencing environmental policies and striving for environmental justice. Prize recipients are ordinary citizens who choose to take great personal risks to safeguard the environment and their communities.
