Dr. James Jenkins is currently an Associate Dean (International) in the School of Life and Medical Sciences at the University of Hertfordshire. He received his PhD in Geography from King’s College London, having previously studied for MSc and BSc degrees at the London School of Economics and University of Sussex respectively. James's research interests lie in the area of water resources problem-solving analysis, with a particular focus on drinking water quality, water usage, and consumer engagement. In the past his research has sought to explore the role of politics and organisations in shaping the application of drinking water policy in the context of the European Union. However, his current research is focused on investigating attitudes to domestic and non-domestic water use as well as governmental and community responses to water usage and water quality.


Special Contribution: Guest Editor of the Special Issue of BJECC on "Adapting climate change through water efficiency".
