Ignacio Cazcarro has BA, MA and PhD (“Summa cum laude”, Doctorate Extraordinary Prize) in Economics from the University of Zaragoza (Spain), where he has been a member of the research group “Growth, Demand and Natural Resources” and involved in projects of the Ministry of Education and Science and the Government of Aragon. He worked for 2+ years as post-doc at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (New York, USA) participating in a National Science Foundation grant project on Dynamics of Coupled Natural and Human Systems, 3+ years as post-doc at the Basque Centre for Climate Change (Bilbao, Spain) and currently as ARAID researcher (Zaragoza, Spain). Participation in projects include river deltas vulnerability (DECCMA), FAO and the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission. His work on Water Footprint (WF) stands out for the first study on WF of tourism, and on linking with input-output analysis, highlighting the integration of the agri-food detail of most referential WF studies.
