AbstractAdaptation to climate change has become an integral part of climate change policies
across the world. Based on the limited literature on the governance of climate change
adaptation, the paper first highlights four key challenges governments face in this
context, i.e. (i) how to better integrate adaptation policies horizontally across policy
sectors and (ii) vertically across levels of government, (iii) how to integrate knowledge in
adaptation policy decisions, and (iv) how to involve stakeholders in adaptation decisions.
The paper then shows how selected OECD countries address these challenges when
developing and implementing adaptation policies and instruments. We identify the most
important governance mechanisms on the national level which constitute a distinct
governance structure in each surveyed country, and highlight their objectives and
specific foci on one or more governance challenges. The paper analyses dominant modes
of emerging interaction patterns in the respective governance arrangements.
