Moderated by Adam Sacks, our three panelists speak of success in mobilizing people to work for water restoration in widely varied settings.

Maude Barlow speaks on how water supply and water rights are at the heart of many conflict and crisis zones throughout the world. On the positive side, this means that the empowerment that comes from the New Water Paradigm can reach a massive web of people positioned to repair local environmental problems locally, as well as participate in healing the planet.

Rajendra Singh tells the story of regeneration and hope from Rajasthan, and how the restoration of river watersheds has built community and livelihoods for its people.

Precious Phiri has been part of the Zimbabwean community grazing culture throughout her life. She has an inspiring vision of community strength and security coming from the collective village-based methods of holistic management.

Presented at Biodiversity for a Livable Climate’s “Restoring Water Cycles to Reverse Global Warming” conference October 16th-18th, 2015 at Tufts University.
