Martin has been invited to sit on a number of working groups and networks with a focus on climate change impacts on freshwaters. He was an invited expert on the European Environment Agency’s (EEA) EIONET network of national experts in support of sharing data and assessment of climate change vulnerability, impacts and adaptation practices. He subsequently contributed to the Science-Policy Interface Working Group A (ECOSTAT – Ecological status) concerning Water Framework Directive implementation. He was an invited expert on the Advisory Group on the EEA 2012 State of Water Report which subsequently fed into the Blueprint to safeguard Europe's water resources. He is currently an invited international expert with the Centre for Regional Change in the Earth System (CRES), Denmark and the Australian National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF).
