Contact Dr Dolores Rey Vicario
Areas of expertise
She has over 8 years research experience on water availability risks and water economics in the agricultural sector. Her current research under the NERC UK Droughts and Water Scarcity research programme seeks to understand farmer decision-making processes regarding water management during drought events and the financial impacts of droughts on UK agriculture. She is the PI of the project “NEXus Thinking for sustainable AGricultural development in Andean countries (NEXT-AG)” working with partners in Chile, Ecuador, Peru and the UK on applying a Water-Energy-Food-Environment nexus approach to inform future irrigated agriculture development policies in Andean countries. As part of her PhD research at the Technical University of Madrid, Dolores was involved in pan European research addressing the use of water markets to cope with water shortages, drought and flood policies related to the agricultural sector in different countries, and assessing climate change impacts on agriculture.
