Zusammenfassung

Angesichts einer kaum zu erwartenden Trendumkehr bereits eingetretener klimatischer Veränderungen gewinnt die Option der Anpassung an den Klimawandel immer mehr an klimapolitischer Bedeutung. Zahlreiche Länder haben durch die Konzeption von Strategien oder Maßnahmenkatalogen bereits einen Anpassungsprozess angestoßen. Daher besteht ein großer Bedarf, diesen Prozess von wissenschaftlicher Seite zu begleiten. Der ökonomischen Disziplin kommt in diesem Zusammenhang eine Schlüsselrolle zu, v. a. im Hinblick auf die Ausgestaltung, Bewertung und Auswahl von Anpassungsmaßnahmen und -instrumenten. Das noch recht junge Feld der ökonomischen Anpassungsforschung wächst mit beträchtlicher Geschwindigkeit und weist bereits eine enorme Bandbreite an methodischen Ansätzen und Forschungsfragen auf. Vor diesem Hintergrund ist der vorliegende Beitrag bestrebt, eine systematische Strukturierung und Synthese der einzelnen Forschungsarbeiten vorzunehmen, um den politischen Akteuren einen Überblick über die wissenschaftlichen Empfehlungen und Erkenntnisse zu verschaffen, die diese bei ihren Entscheidungen berücksichtigen müssen. Ferner sollen offene Forschungsfragen identifiziert und darauf aufbauend Eckpunkte für die zukünftige Ausrichtung der ökonomischen Klimaanpassungsforschung konturiert werden.
