I am currently the Global Project Manager and the Regional Specialist for Latin America and the Caribbean of the UNDP-GEF Global ABS Project since January 2017, a 3-year project that promotes the full implementation of the Nagoya Protocol and ABS in 24 countries around the world. Before I joined UNDP I was the Director of the UNESCO Chair for the Environment at Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (Madrid, Spain), a small department specialized in environmental law and policy. Through a legal and technical assistance to the Spanish Ministry of Environment I was able to be directly involved in the negotiation of the Nagoya Protocol and, after its adoption, I have been supporting its implementation in several countries around the world in different projects to support legal frameworks, research institutions, indigenous peoples and local communities as well as private sector.
