This report summarizes findings of the study on Governance of climate adaptation in the countries of the Alpine macro region on mainstreaming and scaling climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR).
The task of strengthening the coherence of these two fields was elaborated by collecting good practice examples of different governance elements (policies, measures, actors, knowledge and interactions) on various governance levels, bringing together CCA and DRR. The selection of the cases was organized in a collaborative process with members of EUSALP AG 8. The report therefore depicts case studies relevant for the coherence of CCA in Austria, Germany, France, Italy, Liechtenstein, Slovenia and Switzerland and summarizes challenges, success factors and lessons learnt. By a transnational comparison, a guideline for the scope of each case study is provided.
The collection shows that there are already several approaches to strengthen the coherence of DRR and CCA. This report supports the dissemination of lessons learnt across the EUSALP region.
