This topical and engaging Research Handbook illustrates the variety of research approaches in the field of climate change adaptation policy in order to provide a guide to its social and institutional complexity. A range of international expert contributors offer interdisciplinary explorations of climate change adaptation policy from policy sciences, legal, and practitioner perspectives. Using examples from a variety of sectors including water, health and land use, and multiple levels of governance and country contexts, from international to local, and developing to developed countries, the chapters examine a wealth of theoretical orientations towards climate change adaptation policy and their underpinnings. In doing so, this Research Handbook provides an understanding of the complexity of the institutions, decision-makers and assumptions that are involved in adaptation research as well as adaptation policy development and implementation. This Research Handbook will be an indispensable resource for both researchers and practitioners in climate change adaptation with an interest in the research methods and policies that support and advance it. Undergraduate and postgraduate students of environmental studies, public policy and politics will also find this book provides a valuable foundation for building a deeper knowledge of adaptation science and policy.

'The collection of contributions covers a complex variety of adaptation processes and fills in a gap in climate change research which has not taken social theory into due account. The authors capture alternative perspectives, underpinning climate change adaptation in a comprehensive way, moving from a spectrum of possibilities that cover not only "what" is happening, but also "why"' -- Margherita Paola Poto, Arctic Review on Law and Politics 'This thoughtful, timely and comprehensive perspective on climate change adaptation policy provides insights into adaptation as it transitions from theory and planning towards practical implementation. The book is comprehensive and essential reading for all researchers, practitioners, policy- and decision-makers wanting to understand why adaptation is the way it is - why action is sometimes delayed, ineffective or maladaptive, and what the barriers are to achieving successful outcomes.' -- Jean Palutikof, Griffith University, Australia
