By applying the multi-state model of population dynamics, including differential fertility, mortality and migration rates, POP has produced projections of the European and Asian population by age, sex and four levels of educational attainment, as well as population projections by age, sex, and level of educational attainment for the world. Additionally, new measures of aging, developed at IIASA, are presented for the world and world regions, and individual countries. More
Three different scenarios for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, focusing on the goals that could impact fertility and mortality rates and thus population growth are now available for downloading. More
IIASA researchers have developed multi-dimensional/multi-state models to study population dynamics at the global, regional, national and sub-national level. More
The Risk and Resilience program has developed a number of decision-support and process-oriented methods. These tools help stakeholders and policy-makers make sense of the complex governance landscape, while clarifying trade-offs and synergies associated with alternative policy options. More
In the framework of the Centre of Expertise on Population and Migration, a research partnership between IIASA's World Population Program and the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, IIASA provides science-based knowledge on migration and demography to support EU policy. More
The model is currently being applied in Austria to assess flood and drought risk under climate change. The CATSIM Stochastic Debt Assessment has been applied in the assessment of flood risk in 28 EU countries. More
