Due to the lack of success in climate change mitigation efforts, the importance of adaptation is becoming more and more apparent and is now one of the main imperatives of international research and action. However, research on adaptation is mostly not directly applicable to adaptation policy or practice, leaving a gap between scientific results and practical advice for decision makers and planners. This book seeks to address this problem and bridge the gap and should provide readers with practical and applicable information on climate change adaptation.

Following an introduction, the book is organised into four main sections, each reflecting an essential component in the adaptation process. Climate change adaptation is an emerging subject area and has gained increased political and academic attention within the last decade. Whereas most books in the field focus on adaptation in developing countries, this volume provides an examination of predominantly European policy and offers inter-disciplinary insight into cutting edge knowledge and lessons learnt in a relatively new field of implementation.

Review:

 

This Climate Change Adaptation Manual presents a variety of adaptation approaches and practical experiences across Europe and provides a comprehensive overview of the state of the art in other continents. I am confident that this book will be useful to adaptation practitioners and of interest to all concerned by adaptation.

–Humberto Delgado Rosa, Director of Directorate C (Mainstreaming Adaptation and Low Carbon Technology), DG Climate Action, European Commission, Belgium

EEA is convinced that this publication strengthens the knowledge on adaptation to climate change and that it will support, for a wide range of stakeholders, related policy developments and their implementation.

Hans Bruyninckx, Executive Director of the European Environment Agency, EEA, Denmark

This manual is very timely in offering practical guidance on relevant key issues for climate change adaptation. It makes an important contribution in supporting the implementation of high-quality adaptation strategies and measures.

Michael Mullan, Team Leader – Climate Change Adaptation and Development, Environment Directorate, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), France

The Manual organizes its guidance around ten principles for adaptation that are broadly applicable in any region. The Manual makes abundantly clear that meaningful adaptation is possible, now, regardless of current uncertainty. It is critical reading for all who want to engage in reducing vulnerability to climate change, from practitioners to policy makers and researchers.

Martin Parry, Grantham Institute and Centre for Environmental Policy, Imperial College London, UK
