Abstract

This chapter draws conclusions and discusses lessons learned from Santiago de Chile by evaluating the overall process that led to the Regional Climate Change Adaptation Plan. Highlighting both the benefits and constraints of the applied approach, it takes a closer look at the various steps undertaken throughout the entire chain of analysis. It re-examines the actors involved and reflects on the role of science in climate change adaptation. The chapter furthermore addresses appropriate implementation and transfer mechanisms.
