Tight links exist between processes and decisions in water, energy and land systems. Integrated assessment is therefore crucial for designing effective policies that avoid trade-offs and achieve synergies across sectors. The objective of this Special Issue is to improve the knowledge basis on integrated assessment approaches and tools for examining the water–energy–land nexus. Contributions will feature all three systems (water, energy and land) and span a range of spatial and temporal scales relevant for policy-making. We are particulary interested in analyses that examine and discuss solutions to water–energy–land nexus challenges.
Sincerely,Dr. Simon C. Parkinson
