Dr. Manuel-Navarrete began as a consultant for the Sustainable Development and Human Settlements Division for the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Carribbean in 2004. In 2007, he joined King's College in London as a research associate in the Department of Geography. Later on in 2010, Manuel-Navarrete was a visiting researcher for Free University of Berlin and Ibero-American Institute in Germany.

Manuel-Navarrete's recent research investigated climate change governance, socio-ecological inequality, and knowledge systems for sustainable agriculture. He is currently exploring how the boundaries produced by tourism urbanization regulate the access of diverse social groups to ecosystem services in coastal regions. Understanding how socio-ecological boundaries are managed, and eventually transformed, by boundary spanning individuals/objects/organizations is key to achieving sustainability goals. Manuel-Navarrete has participated in several international and interdisciplinary research projects and assessments involving case studies in Argentina, Brazil, Central America, and Mexico. He has published numerous books, chapters, and journal articles about sustainable food systems, adaptation to climate change, ecological integrity and more.
