Irene Martin

Master in Ecological Economics & Environmental Management, graduated in Environmental Science (Autonomous University of Barcelona) and in Technical Engineering in Telecommunications Systems (Polytechnic University of Catalonia).
With more than twenty years’ experience in the field of environmental, urban and sectorial planning I have worked in NGOs, the private sector and research centres. For more than 10 years I have been working in the Catalonian Government, in the Ministry of Territory and Sustainability, promoting and supervising the Strategic Environmental Assessment as well as integrating sustainability criteria in planning.

I have been involved in more than sixty plans and programs as the Catalonian Energy and Climate Change Plan, the Barcelona Metropolitan Territorial Plan or the Urban Mobility Metropolitan Plan.

I am responsible for the coordination of sustainability and health objectives and actions within multilevel governmental tiers. I also promote and coordinate the interdisciplinary work between sectorial planning promoters and key actors.
