Staunch eco-campaigner and former Philippine Environment Minister Gina Lopez has died at the age of 65.
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
She was known for her strong stance against mining, closing down many of the country's quarries during her ten months in office in 2016.
Ms Lopez was also an advocate for children's rights and protection.
ABS-CBN, the broadcasting company her family founded, said she was a "pillar of strength".
She was chair of the company's social development organisation.
"Her caring heart and selfless kind of love inspired people within and beyond the organisation to help and serve others," ABS-CBN said in a statement.
