Marta Rivera Ferre, University of Vic, Spain
Marta G. Rivera-Ferre, Ramón y Cajal Research Fellow and accredited Professor at the University of Vic-Central University of Catalonia, Honorary Researcher at the University of Coventry. She coordinates the research line "Sustainable communities, social innovations and territories" within the group "Inclusive Societies, Policies and Communities" and is the director of the Chair Agroecology and Food Systems. With a multidisciplinary profile in the analysis of societal (gender, poverty) and environmental (climate change) interactions within agri-food systems, she has a particular interest in alternative agri-food systems, and in the way different mental models and discourses co-exist in agricultural research and management, particularly in food security. She has worked on the potential role of local and traditional agri-food knowledge in adaptation to climate change. She has participated as lead author in the UN-lead assessments the International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD) and the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC) chapters on Rural areas (2010-2014) and Food systems and food security (2017-2019).
