Forecasting the effects of today's policies.

Edited by Tony Payan, Alfonso López de la Osa Escribano and Jesús Velasco

The authors use an innovative methodology to forecast how key issues of concern to the U.S. and Mexico — from drug trafficking to shared groundwater — will fare if conditions improve, deteriorate or remain the same over the next two decades. This study will help decision-makers understand the effects of their choices as they formulate new policies. The book is available for purchase here.

This edited volume is the culmination of a collaborative project, which was launched in 2018. For more information on the project, please visit
