Discussion of their strengths and weaknesses from an adaptation perspective is given in Sect. 4. 2 A Framework for the Science Contribution in Climate Adaptation The framework proposed in Huggel et al. (2015, b) consists of the three interconnected phases framing and scoping, scientific assessment and evaluation of adaptation options and their implementation (see Fig. 2). In the following we briefly summarize the three phases. The first phase compiles the context. Ideally, the framing and scoping is a joint process, involving different stakeholders.
