In 2019, Regules García joined the Council’s Population, Environmental Risks, and Climate Crisis Initiative (PERCC). He has engaged in different collaborative research projects with other researchers at the Council to conduct sub-national demographic and urbanization projections in the context of climate change.

Regules García has also focused on efforts to understand the effects of the COVID-19 mitigation measures on youth (PC’s VoCes-19 study); and to expand access to safe and legal abortion, and to improve access to sexual and reproductive health services (SRHS) and the well-being of girls and adolescents. Since 2019, Regules Garcia has collaborated with The National Pro-Choice Alliance (Mexico)—a consortium of national and international non-governmental organizations working to address access to SRHR in Mexico.
