Toelichting (Engels) There is growing recognition for the need to prepare for climate change. Sea level rise and greater variability in temperature and precipitation are expected to create increasing challenges for urban areas. Climate adaptation requires action in the face of uncertainty. To enhance the adaptive capacity of a network to cope with climate change is a continuous challenge. Various frameworks with enabling elements have been published. However, there is a lack of empirical understanding of how the governance capacity of climate adaptation can be strengthened. This research presents an analysis and evaluation of the governance capacity for regional climate adaptation. The research has been done in two regions in the Netherlands: Platform Water Vallei en Eem (PWVE) and Samenwerkingsverband Watersamenwerking As50+ (As50). The following research question guided this study: “What are relevant elements for enhancing the governance capacity of regional climate adaptation and to what extent do governance practices in two regions in the Netherlands contribute to the development of these elements?”
