Rulli and colleagues estimate that global land grabbing is associated with the grabbing of 308 billion m3 of green water (i.e. rain water) and an additional grabbing of blue water that can range from 11 billion m3 (current irrigation practices) to 146 billion m3 (maximal irrigation) per year. To put these numbers in perspective, the average daily household consumption of water in the UK is 150 liters (0.15 m3) per person.
