The Roles of Residents in Climate Adaptation: A systematic review in the case of The Netherlands
Hegger, D.L.T. ; Mees, H.L.P. ; Driessen, P.P.J. ; Runhaar, Hens - \ 2017
Environmental Policy and Governance 27 (2017)4. - ISSN 1756-932X - p. 336 - 350.
adaptation governance; literature review; residents; responsibilities; roles; The Netherlands
Climate adaptation literature has hitherto devoted limited attention to the roles of residents. Yet their role is crucial in addressing non- or maladaptation, as their initiative or consent is often necessary to take adaptation measures in or around the house. To address this knowledge gap, this paper explores mainstream and additional roles for residents through a literature review. Mainstream roles are those roles that residents usually take, while additional roles are more specific and local in nature. The latter may, however, provide the seeds for wider change. To structure the results, we made a distinction between three forms of residents’ commitment to adaptation: as (1) citizens falling under the jurisdiction of various governmental levels; (2) consumers (including home owners) in the market; and (3) civil society members/partners. While this is an established categorization in other domains of environmental governance, it has not yet been systematically applied to the adaptation domain. The paper’s empirical focus regarding mainstream and additional roles is on the Dutch adaptation domains of flood risk management, stormwater management and dealing with heat stress. We found scope for additional roles for residents, especially as consumers in the market and civil society members. The findings are of significance for the global debate on residents’ roles in climate adaptation and suggest that addressing all three forms of commitment may enhance the implementation of measures as well as their legitimacy, residents’ awareness and societies’ potential to innovate.

Boundary organisations and their strategies : Three cases in the Wadden Sea
Enst, Wynanda I. van; Runhaar, Hens A.C. ; Driessen, P.P.J. - \ 2016
Environmental Science & Policy 55 (2016)Part 3. - ISSN 1462-9011 - p. 416 - 423.
Boundary organisations - Boundary work - Goals - Strategies - Wadden Sea

This article discusses three empirical cases of boundary organisations, within the context of the Wadden Sea: the Wadden Academy, IMSA Amsterdam and the NCEA. The research aims to provide further insights into how boundary organisations work in practice. The research shows that the role of a boundary organisation can be fulfilled by different types of organisations (not solely scientific). Depending on the science-policy interaction problem they face, a boundary organisation can have different goals and use different strategies. Furthermore, the strategic use of media outputs, and the degree of actuality and public debate can have a substantial influence on the practices of boundary organisations.

This is the final report (eindrapport) of the national Knowledge for Climate (KfC) research program. The program was set up in 2007 to explore the consequences of climate change for the Netherlands and how they should be managed. To that end, an independent foundation was established with the objective of “promoting evidence-based and practice- driven knowledge about climate in the public interest, including making that knowledge available to the public. The foundation has achieved that objective, together with stakeholders, by organizing and funding research and encouraging the processes of knowledge dissemination and application. Follow-up foundations are: Delta Alliance International, Climate Adaptation Services, Waterbuffer Foundation. The program did not aim to influence regional and local authorities directly. It provided the knowledge needed to improve decision-making regarding long term spatial planning investments. The program provided the tools – for example the Climate Adaptation Atlas – so that local and regional authorities can get to work on adaptation.

Over the past decades, significant experience has been gained in demand-driven research on climate change in many countries. In the Netherlands, a competitive call for proposals for large research programmes at the interface between policy, science and private sector was issued in 2001. Members of the Dutch climate research community proved they were able to develop two large research programme proposals which were funded: ‘Climate changes Spatial Planning’ and its successor ‘Knowledge for Climate’. The programmes ran from 2004 to 2012 and from 2008 to 2014, respectively. Both programmes can be considered as a 10-year research programme experiment to develop knowledge about both the climate system and climate compatible development by crossing disciplines, institutions and national research funding strategies. Within this 10-year period, a trend can be observed in which a ‘top-down’ climate impact assessment approach is increasingly combined with a ‘bottom-up’ approach. Based on the 15 articles presented in this special issue (and others), we argue that this development has enriched both fundamental and applied research on climate adaptation. Despite the predominantly Dutch-oriented scope of the presented research, we believe that such experiences can be of international interest. Climate adaptation research finds itself in between global systems knowledge on the one hand and practical needs and experiences at the local, regional and national level on the other. This demands the utmost from all actors involved to enable an efficient and constructive flow and use of knowledge and expertise.

From 2008 to 2011, Knowledge for Climate contributed to the development of the Joint Programming Initiative “Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe” (JPI Climate). In 2010, a proposal was developed and accepted, followed in 2011 by the development and adoption of a governance structure and a strategic research agenda. The Initiative is supported by 12 member and 3 observer countries. It is expected to play a major role in aligning climate research programmes in the participating countries and developing joint activities to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of national programmes. This report summarizes the most important documents and the Dutch involvement in the programme, including the development of a Vision Paper. It also discusses the future plans and collaborations.
The need for flexibility and differentiation in the protection of vulnerable areas in EU envrionmental law: the implementation of the nitrates directive in the Netherlands
Keessen, A.M. ; Runhaar, H. ; Schoumans, O.F. ; Rijswick, H.F.M.W. ; Driessen, P.P.J. ; Oenema, O. ; Zwart, K.B. - \ 2011

The Nitrates Directive (91/676/EEC) offers EU Member States the unique choice to apply the nitrate regime in either designated areas or on their entire territory. The Netherlands has opted for a whole territory approach but is tempted to change this policy. This article investigates the legal options of the Netherlands to switch from a whole territory approach to a designated area approach. It also investigates two alternative possibilities to create a more area-based implementation of the Nitrates Directive in the Netherlands within a whole territory approach. The alternatives are (i) a further differentiation of the current manure policy and (ii) the possibility to integrate the implementation of the Nitrates Directive and the Water Framework Directive. The results of the research are placed in a European perspective.

Klimaatverandering is als onderzoeksdomein van oorsprong gedreven en gedomineerd door de natuurwetenschappen. Toch zijn het allang niet meer bestuurskundigen die aangeven dat de ontwikkeling en realisatie van migratie- en adaptatiestrategieën toch ook een kwestie van governance zijn. Het is wel opvallend dat governancevragen in eerste instantie binnen het natuurwetenschappelijk domein zijn geagendeerd en onderzocht. In dit artikel wordt een voorstel gedaan voor een bestuurskundige onderzoeksagenda. Deze staat niet los van het huidige discours van klimaatonderzoek maar zoekt naar een kritische verbinding

This report provides a state-of-the-art overview of governance literature on adaptation strategies. What has recent research taught us on adaptation from the perspective of governance and to what research agenda does this lead? This report is structured as followed. Firstly, it will be argued why adaptation is a matter of governance. Secondly, the research methods for the literature study will be outlined. Thirdly, the results of the literature study will portray the findings in terms of the themes and foci with, respectively, environmental studies, spatial planning and development studies, and public administration studies. Finally, a comparative analysis of these findings will lead to a research agenda for future research on governance of adaptation

Klimaatverandering is ruimtelijk relevant. Daarom heeft de overheid een politieke ambitie vastgelegd in de nationale adaptatiestrategie ‘Maak ruimte voor klimaat’ (2007) om Nederland klimaatbestendig te maken en ook in de toekomst bij ruimtelijke inrichtingsvraagstukken rekening te houden met klimaatverandering. Een hernieuwde visie op de inrichting van Nederland is derhalve noodzakelijk. Die visie moet gebaseerd zijn op de actuele stand van de wetenschappelijke kennis. Bij het opstellen van die visie moeten verschillende belangen en waarden in onze maatschappij. Het heeft geresulteerd in een groot aantal kennisvragen. De twee kennisprogramma’s (Klimaat voor Ruimte en Kennis voor Klimaat) zullen deze onderzoekvragen gezamenlijk verder uitwerken en prioriteiten stellen in het uitzetten van nader onderzoek op het gebied.
