Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Sustainability

Mesfin M. Mekonnen mainly focuses on Water use, Virtual water, Water pollution, Drainage basin and Water resources. His Water use research includes themes of Agriculture, Natural resource economics, Environmental protection and Agricultural science. His studies examine the connections between Virtual water and genetics, as well as such issues in Environmental resource management, with regards to Carbon footprint.

His Water pollution study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Water balance, Soil water and Agronomy. His Water resources study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Surface water and Water resource management. His study in Farm water is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Water scarcity and Water supply.

His most cited work include:

  • Four billion people facing severe water scarcity (1254 citations)
  • The Water Footprint Assessment Manual: Setting the Global Standard (1179 citations)
  • The green, blue and grey water footprint of crops and derived crop products (1103 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Mesfin M. Mekonnen focuses on Water use, Agriculture, Water scarcity, Water resources and Virtual water. His work deals with themes such as Drainage basin, Sustainability, Agricultural economics and Environmental protection, which intersect with Water use. His research integrates issues of Agronomy, Crop yield, Grazing and Crop in his study of Agriculture.

His studies in Water scarcity integrate themes in fields like Water security, Natural resource economics, Surface water and Water resource management. His Water resources research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Evapotranspiration, Irrigation and Water supply. His Virtual water study combines topics in areas such as Water conservation and Environmental resource management.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Water use (84.40%)
  • Agriculture (33.94%)
  • Water scarcity (27.52%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Water use (84.40%)
  • Agriculture (33.94%)
  • Sustainability (20.18%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Water use, Agriculture, Sustainability, Agronomy and Water scarcity. Mesfin M. Mekonnen undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Water use and Consumption through his research. His research in the fields of Food systems overlaps with other disciplines such as Malnutrition.

He combines subjects such as Rainfed agriculture and Environmental protection with his study of Sustainability. His work on Crop, Water stress and Fodder is typically connected to Central asia as part of general Agronomy study, connecting several disciplines of science. Within one scientific family, Mesfin M. Mekonnen focuses on topics pertaining to Drainage basin under Water scarcity, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Water resource management, Irrigation and Crop yield.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Country-specific dietary shifts to mitigate climate and water crises (43 citations)
  • Treenuts and groundnuts in the EAT-Lancet reference diet: Concerns regarding sustainable water use (11 citations)
  • Water scarcity and fish imperilment driven by beef production (8 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Sustainability

His primary scientific interests are in Water use, Sustainability, Agriculture, Water scarcity and Agricultural economics. Water use is a subfield of Agronomy that he tackles. His work in the fields of Agronomy, such as Water stress and Fodder, intersects with other areas such as Central asia.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Water security, Irrigation, Drainage basin and River ecosystem, Ecosystem in addition to Environmental protection. His Food systems research incorporates themes from Red meat and Greenhouse gas. His Land use, land-use change and forestry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Climate change, Agricultural productivity, Food waste and Food processing.
