Authors’s abstract :

The article responds to the growing tendency to indistinctively label policy actions as climate change adaptation, which has hampered comparative policy analysis and policy evaluation. In the paper we explore the origin of the dependent variable problem and propose ways to deal with it conceptually. We believe our finding are relevant both for scholars involved in comparative studies on adaptation, but also for the community of policy evaluators and practitioners which are now given the task to assess the nebula of policy initiatives that are more or less tackling adaptation.
