Céline Nauges is a senior researcher at the French Institute for Research in Agriculture (INRA) and Toulouse School of Economics (France). The research questions that she has addressed since her Ph.D. dissertation could be summed up under the heading "Applied microeconometrics aimed at informing economic policies for the management of natural resources, with a special focus on water". She has contributed to the modelling of behaviour of economic actors involved in the water sector, in particular households, farmers, and water utilities, both in developed and developing countries.
In the agricultural sector, Céline Nauges developed some research on farmers' behaviour in areas where irrigation water can be a limiting input, developing models which accommodate production risk and technological innovation. She has also performed several ex-post analyses of environmental and/or agricultural policies in various countries. She has developed collaborations with a large number of international researchers. She has published more than 20 research articles in national and international journals with referee process, including some of the highest ranked journals in the field of agricultural and resource economics such as the American Journal of Agricultural Economics and the Journal of Environmental and Economics Management. She has been chosen as a water sector expert by various institutions including the Inter American Development Bank, the World Bank, and the OECD.
