Carme Melo
Research Professor at INGENIO (CSIC-UPV), Valencia (Spain). She was director of the Chair of Agroecology and Food Systems at the University of Vic-Central University of Catalonia (UVic-UCC) between 2014 and 2021. His research experience has given him a multidisciplinary profile in the analysis of agri-food systems. In recent years she has focused on the sociology of agriculture and food, and in particular on the interactions between agriculture, food, society and the environment, with emphasis on adaptation to climate change and food security and food sovereignty, as well as on the social function of agriculture and the role of women from a feminist studies perspective.

Climate change has been at the centre of the environmental debate for three decades. The fight needs an innovative approach based on citizen politics and social transformation.
