This chapter describes 12 real-life cases showing how policy-makers, decision-makers and researchers from different countries have struggled together to deal with uncertain information in adaptation decision-making. The case studies cover a wide range of sectors and themes, including water management, infrastructure, disaster risk reduction, health, forestry, agriculture, health and nature conservation and development. Each experience highlights the different types of uncertainties addressed, justifies the selected methods that were used to deal with these uncertainties and how it affected the decision taken. The cases discuss both classical types of risk analysis as well as novel approaches such as seeking robust adaptation strategies. They all show the importance of involving stakeholders to deal with uncertainty in adaption decision making.
