Sammanfattning

The paper highlights the role of scientific knowledge in stakeholder deliberations on climate adaptation efforts in two case studies in Sweden, a horizontal study of the Stockholm region, as well as a vertical study of the forestry sector. Preliminary results from a series of focus groups are discussed, centering around two dimensions: 1) Stakeholder needs and perceptions on usefulness/user friendliness and modes of communication of scientific results; and 2) Perspectives on climate and impact model results and implications with regards to risk perceptions and adaptation needs.
