Marta has over 13 years of professional experience working in the field of climate change in public, private and academic sectors for different types of clients.
In addition she served as Head of Climate mitigation for the Government of Catalonia. In 2013, Marta became co-Director of the MAPS Programme, a collaboration amongst developing countries employing over hundred experts to establish the evidence base for long term transition to robust economies that are carbon efficient.
Marta has been working on projects that focused on diverse aspects of international energy & climate policy design and economic evaluation, in particular she has extensively worked on formulation of mitigation goals and strategies, for example for the development of (I)NDCs. She has developed sound expertise on mitigation instruments, such as emission trading, voluntary programmes, NAMAs, sectoral targets and project-based mechanisms, along with a notable track record of MRV and accounting-related work.
Her responsibilities have included research, strategy development, public representation as well as project, budgets & team management, and project evaluation. Marta built up valuable know-how on developing countries’ dynamics, through theoretical courses and PhD work, and over the on-the-ground experience of the MAPS Programme. Under MAPS, Marta further improved her research, client management and leadership capabilities, advanced her know-how on policy- and decision-making, complex theories & policy implementation, and consolidated an international network of climate and development practitioners.
