Exploring strategic farming choices to respond to mitigation and adaptation to climate change
El investigador desarrolla un modelo de revelación de preferencias bajo la Teoría de la Utilidad Multiatributo que, consistente con la teoría económica permite explicar las decisiones de cultivo de los regantes. El modelo es aplicado sobre la toma de decisiones ante la volatilidad de los precios de los productos agrarios y la mejora en la eficiencia de riego.
