Ignacio Cazcarro “An understanding of the natural world and what’s in it is a source of not only a great curiosity but great fulfillment.” —David Attenborough

An important part of the scientific community expects that the world's population will have grown from 7 to 9 billion by 2050, and key social challenges as conflicts, poverty and inequalities, are expected to coexist with other interrelated with the natural world, in relation to food and energy, water, land, in general scarcity of resources such as oil and minerals, and climate change. All in all, humanity is going through several social and environmental challenges and crisis for which research, among other tasks, are needed in order to better organize our societies within the ecological systems.

Short CV

Ignacio Cazcarro has BA, MA and PhD ("Summa cum laude", Quality and European Doctorate and Doctorate Extraordinary Prize 2011/2012) 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 several projects funded by the Ministry of Education and Science and the Government of Aragon. He worked for more than 2 years as post-doctoral research fellow at the Department of Economics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy (New York, USA) participating in a National Science Foundation (USA) grant project on Dynamics of Coupled Natural and Human Systems.

His research focuses mainly on national and environmental accounts and resources (especially on water), the agri-food economy, and makes extensive use of water models, input-output models and world trade models. He has contributed to several book chapters and articles in international journals such as Environmental Science and Technology, Journal of Industrial Ecology, Economic Systems Research, Ecological Economics, Tourism Management, Journal of Cleaner Production, Applied Economics, Sustainability and the Spanish Journal of Agricultural Research.
