Maude Barlow is a political activist, author, policy critic and outspoken crusader for Canada. She is a director with the International Forum on Globalization, a network of individuals and groups from around the world advocating for democratic control of the global economy, and serves as the national volunteer chairperson for The Council of Canadians, a non-profit, non-partisan public interest organization supported by 100,000 members.

Based on her bestselling book, Maude Barlow offers solutions to the global water crisis based on four simple principles:

Principle One: Water Is a Human Right chronicles the long fight to have the human right to water recognized and the powerful players still impeding this progress.
Principle Two: Water Is a Common Heritage and Public Trust argues that water must not become a commodity to be bought and sold on the open market.
Principle Three: Water Has Rights Too makes the case for the protection of source water and the need to make our human laws compatible with those of nature.
Principle Four: Water Will Teach Us How to Live Together urges us to come together around a common threat — the end of water — and find a way to live more lightly on this planet.
