Short summary
This paper deals with climate change adaptation policy in South Korea. It shows that the implementation of the idea "adapting to climate change" has been highly influenced by the political structure and perception of how to deal with a problem that is highly uncertain. The implications of the research are that the implementation of a political agenda across different political systems requires not only exchange of information but also guidance for institutional adjustments.
