Mexico

In June 2014 Mexico became IIASA’s twenty-second member country. The Mexican National Committee for IIASA, which includes the Mexican National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT) and the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI), serves as Mexico’s National Member Organization (NMO) to IIASA.

In 2014 IIASA’s demographers developed literate life expectancy indicators for the social development of the Mexican population, as well as probabilistic methodology to project the Mexican population. And another study examined Mexico’s pension system.

While Mexico’s membership is new, the country has a long history of collaboration with IIASA. Many young Mexican research scholars have studied at IIASA for one or two years funded by the Luis Donaldo Colosio Fellowship. The most recent fellowship was awarded to Luzma Fabiola Nava Jiménez, a water researcher who joined IIASA in September 2014 to explore transboundary river and environment issues with IIASA’s Water Program.

New cross-cutting research on unconventional gas

In 2014 the Transitions to New Technologies (TNT) Program in collaboration with IIASA’s Energy (ENE) and Mitigation of Air Pollution & Greenhouse Gas (MAG) Programs worked on scoping a new cross-cutting research project on unconventional gas resources—which are potentially vast—and also on identifying a potential unique niche for IIASA in this rapidly crowding research field. more

Sustainable forest management: Certification of boreal forests

With the Ecosystems Services and Management’s (ESM) Earth Observation Systems research group, the Policy and Science Interface (PSI) research group developed a methodology to support assessment of forest management certification and policymaking. In 2014, this methodology was refined and applied to a case study in the boreal forest area. more

Comparative approaches to the environmental governance of transboundary water resources between the United States and Mexico: The cases of the Rio Grande/Río Bravo Basin and the Colorado River Basin

Luzma Fabiola Nava Jiménez is working with the Water Program, researching the transboundary governance regime in the binational US/Mexico Rio Grande/Rio Bravo Basin to assess the institutional and organizational arrangements for water management and conservation, and thereby define a broader framework to compare different scenarios of transboundary water governance. more
