This report gives an overview on the status of climate change adaptation (CCA) policy-making and governance in the Alpine space. The current challenges and barriers to CCA policy-making are identified. Based on the performance assessment and a compilation of good practice examples, policy recommendations for different stages of the CCA policy cycle are formulated. Furthermore, the main features of the science-policy interface are determined, in order to develop recommendations for its improvement. The results of this report show that most countries show some level of CCA policy-making activity. The findings further indicate that there is no ideal process to achieve an approved policy document that will lead to the effective implementation of measures.
