On Monday, April 18th, Edward Loure received the Goldman Environmental Prize for his longstanding dedication to land rights in Tanzania. Loure, a Maasai herder himself, works for Ujamaa Community Resource Team (UCRT), a local NGO with whom Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium fights for land rights of Maasai pastoralists.
