This paper provides a starting point for identifying success factors and case studies on how good adaptation could work in practice at various governance levels and in different sectors. It presents a set of guiding principles for good adaptation in Europe and therein identifies specific elements that support its successful implementation. Furthermore, it illustrates a few practical examples that are meant to highlight how certain aspects presented in the guiding principles can be put into practice.
The guiding principles build on a comprehensive literature review, a comparison of national adaptation strategies, expert judgements and good practice examples.
