However, also at the sub-national level, many stakeholders contribute to increasing adaptation capacity and reducing vulnerability to climate impacts, for example the federal states, municipalities and other non-state actors.The second evaluation of the German Adaptation Strategy aims to answer, among others, the questions where Germany stands with adaptation, whether enough is already being done or whether more targeted, efficient measures are still needed in some areas, how the various actors cooperate and where there is still potential for improvement. Progress on adaptation in Germany, also at sub-national level, will be highlighted and needs for action identified. The results will contribute to the further development of the adaptation process in Germany.CEval GmbH is conducting the evaluation commissioned by the Federal Environment Agency (UBA) together with adelphi (Berlin) and a group of national adaptation experts. The main focus of CEval GmbH is on supporting the further development of the evaluation concept and methodology, the implementation of the actual evaluation applying a multi-method design and the updating of the handbook developed in the course of the first DAS evaluation on suitable methodological procedures for the evaluation of adaptation strategies.
