Young Champion of the Earth 2019: Louise Mabulo

2019 Champion of the Earth for Asia and the Pacific, Louise Mabulo, works with farmers in the Philippines who live below the poverty line, and are vulnerable to not only disaster, but become targets of terrorist groups. Louise established The Cacao Project, which aims to combat deforestation by reviving barren lands through tree planting, creating economic forests and nurseries, promoting fair trade and reforestation, while empowering farmers with higher incomes.
