Carmen has an extensive work experience in various fields related to natural resources management. She started her professional career in Spain by elaborating management plans and guidelines for riparian ecosystem restauration, wildlife enhancement and biodiversity conservation.
Afterwards, her career got more specialised in sustainable forest management, developing long and short-term forest management plans in line with FSC & PEFC requirements. She worked with public institutions and landowners, encouraging them to undertake appropriate sustainable management within their properties. She also promoted FSC & PEFC certification to private forestland owners and timber industry companies and helped them with the certification process.
