About Many public authorities are trying to shape their policies in greater consultation with a range of civil society organisations (‘from government to governance’). Does this interactive policy style lend itself to a problem such as climate change? The project is working on the concept of ‘institutions’, which we understand to mean the rules and principles for conducting public life. Institutions can be organisations, but also laws and informal codes of conduct. The study will first develop a framework for assessing the adaptive capacity of a system of national institutions. This framework will then be applied to the Dutch administrative system. The research will look at four sectors: nature, water, agriculture and spatial planning.
