Pablo Fernández Méndez
Estación Biológica de Doñana
Pablo is an environmental scientist and institutional analyst focusing on the study of patterns, interactions and feedbacks between human societies and nature. His aim is to contribute to our current understanding of the evolution of the conditions necessary for human cooperation to attain more equitable and sustainable opportunities and outcomes in social-ecological systems (SES). The latter constitutes an object of study of the Earth System that addresses specific relationships and problems among socioeconomic, institutional, natural resources and ecological components.
He also enjoys working in the resolution of complex problems with other people, in design thinking mode. When in a consultancy capacity, his role is an analyst applying research-based ways for improving policy and decision making under uncertainty in different sectors: natural resources; nature conservation; ecosystem management; environmental, coastal and urban planning; biodiversity; fisheries; tourism; and emergency aid. He also has experience in facilitating and organising (individually or collaboratively) social interaction in meetings and workshops, sometimes in conflictive or competitive situations.
