Abstract

In this working document we aim to answer the following question: Do institutions for spatial planning, water and nature management in the Netherlands enhance the capacity of society to adapt to climate change? To answer this question we have first reviewed the literature on adaptive governance and complexity theory. Drawing on this literature, we have developed an assessment tool, the ‘adaptive capacity wheel’, which distinguishes between three dimensions integral to adaptive capacity: variety, learning capacity, and room for autonomous change, and three factors conducive to adaptive capacity: leadership, resources and fair governance
