The Global Water Crisis & the Coming Battle for the Right to WaterAuthor: Maude Barlow
BLUE COVENANT, The Sequel to Blue Gold, the earlier international bestseller, describes a powerful response to this trend: the emergence of an international, grassroots-led movement to have water declared a basic human right, something that can’t be bought or sold for profit.
World renowned activist Maude Barlow is at the centre of this movement, which is gaining popular and political support across the gobe, encompassing protests in India against US bottling giant Coca-Cola etc.
With great passion and clarity, Barlow traces the history of these international battles, documents the life & death stakes involved in the fight for the right to water, and lays out the actions that we as global citizens must take to secure a water-just world – a “blue covenant” – for all
