|About||An exact prediction of future climate changes is impossible. Firstly, because of the uncertainty related to the main causes of climate change. Secondly, because of the even larger uncertainty in feedback processes, both back - and forward-coupling. A third reason is that not all natural systems respond at the same pace of change. Finally, our knowledge about climate systems and the developments through time is very limited, making it difficult to do any predictions. The aim of this study is to make an inventory of the contributions to the scientific literature that addresses adaptation to climate change from a spatial economic perspective and to formulate relevant (future) research themes. Therefore, a literature review was conducted that includes articles from the core scientific literature1 and reports from institutes and agencies that act as an interface between policy and science|
