Food & Water Watch has recently produced a 4-page factsheet on the 
global trend of land grabs.  Many of the land buyers, especially from 
arid and import dependent countries, are essentially seeking access to 
water as much as they are land. Buying or leasing land with more 
plentiful water allows arid countries to shift domestic irrigation 
water to municipal water supplies.

The factsheet, Global Land Grab Undermines Food Security in the 
Developing World is available here:
