To investigate the impact of policy interventions while assessing the interlinkages of the Climate, Land, Energy, and Water systems (CLEWs) nexus, we develop a CLEWs model of Canada. The nexus approach accounts for the synergies and trade-offs between interconnected systems. Canada, with its diverse set of political jurisdictions and energy systems, provides an interesting application of the CLEWs modelling approach. We utilize an open-source integrated modelling framework to assess direct and indirect impacts of policy decisions on long-term energy supply, agriculture, and land use, and GHG emissions.
