Summary: Over the past few years, and certainly since the publication of the "Stern Report", there has been increasing recognition that climate change is a not only an environmental crisis, but one with important social and economic dimensions. Based on a four-year research project funded by The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) under the programme "Vulnerability, Adaptation and Mitigation" (VAM), presents a cluster of case studies of industries, communities and institutions which each show how vulnerability, adaptation and mitigation analyses can be integrated using social behavioural sciences. Each chapter makes specific recommendations for the studied industry sector, community or institution, analyses the latest research developments of the field and identifies priorities for future research. Argues that the inherent complexity of climate change will ultimately require a much more integrated response both scientifically - to better understand multiple causes and impacts - as well as at the scientific/​policy interface, where new forms of engagement between scientists, policy-makers and wider stakeholder groups can make a valuable contribution to more informed climate policy and practice.
