The goal of the following final report is to determine criteria for good practice in implementing climate change adaptation. Although a number of publications exist in the form of scientific articles and practical handbooks and guides to adaptation measures, so far only solitary approaches have been undertaken for the systematisation and evaluation of good practice regarding adaptation measures. Therefore, developing a set of criteria for judging good practice in climate change adaptation can offer guidance for private and public actors in adapting to climate change. The proposition of such a set will initially be made possible by analysing national, European and international publications and websites. This research and analysis, as well as a survey of expert opinion, will form the basis for a consistent and compact set of criteria for good practice. This encompasses the following criteria: effectiveness, robustness, sustainability, financial feasibility, positive side effects and flexibility. The biggest challenge in applying the criteria is still the development of a practical and transparent methodology by which the fulfilment of the criteria can be ascertained.
