 The global water crisis is one of the most serious issues of our time. Maude Barlow is an outstanding leader who has pioneered people's and nature's right to water for the last decade. Blue Covenant will inspire civil society movements around the world. Vandana Shiva, physicist, ecologist, activist, editor, and author of Biopiracy and Stolen Harvest

Clean water is the bottom line of all bottom linesand Maude Barlow shows, with compelling reporting, that we're about to go H2O-broke. But she's also a leader of an emerging movement for water justice, one that is starting to score victories in the desperate fight to keep a thirsty planet slaked. Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy and The End of Nature
Maude Barlow is the national chairperson of The Council of Canadians, Canada's largest citizens' advocacy organization with members and chapters across Canada. Maude Barlow is also the co-founder of the Blue Planet Project which works to stop commodification of the world's water.
