The Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 (MPE2013) initiative, sponsored by mathematical professional societies around the world, focuses on sharing information and news about the role of mathematics in understanding our world. IIASA is working with MPE2013 to help highlight mathematical research through lectures and events around the world. 

IIASA research epitomizes the use of mathematics to solve global environmental problems. For example, the science of climate modeling was based on mathematical models developed at IIASA in the 1970’s. IIASA researchers continue to innovate in advanced mathematical systems research that applies to climate, energy systems, air pollution, food supply, and water.
