Short CV

Ignacio is Laureate of the Make Our Planet Great Again (MOPGA) Research Program at CNRS, based at the Laboratoire d’écologie alpine, Université Grenoble Alps, France. His research focuses on human-nature interactions, nature-based adaptation to climate change and transformative adaptation. He has specialized in socio-ecological systems in mountain areas. He is interested in transdisciplinary science and its impact towards policy relevant targets such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Ignacio is Lead Author of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), member of the Global Young Academy (GYA) and founding member of the Spanish Young Academy. In addition, Ignacio is part of the protected areas commission of the United Nations International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). He has published more than 45 scientific articles in academic journals, as well as several books and informative articles. He received the PhD Award at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 2013 for his PhD on a social-ecological approach in protected areas.
