Since 2010, research collaborations between IIASA and Mexico have involved 19 Mexican organizations and led to 47 scientific publications in areas ranging from water resources, sustainable land use, and demography. Joint studies focus on the complex global systems that affect Mexico, its economy, environment, and people.
Research topics include governance of transboundary water resources, risks to financial crises, climate change, sustainable energy, fiscal planning for extreme events, and projecting demographic change.
Machine learning is gaining prominence as a powerful tool that can deliver more precise and efficient models, as well as more accurate and rich results. In 2019, IIASA researchers continued to investigate how various machine-learning algorithms can help create and analyze data, as well as how they can help develop new tools to make modeling more efficient and feasible.

The next generation of systems analysts are profiting from Mexican involvement in IIASA capacity building activities, including participating in the Luis Donaldo Colosio Fellowship and the IIASA-CONACYT Postdoctoral Fellowship. This mutually beneficial relationship involves scientific exchange, with 40 Mexican researchers, advisors, and diplomats visiting IIASA or participating in IIASA events, and over 50 IIASA researchers participating in events or visiting institutions in Mexico.
