Determinants of adaptive capacity in water systems

 Study scopeElements of adaptive capacitySource
Capacity for flooding prevention in the Rhine Delta Availability of technological options and resources;
structure of critical institutions;
stock of human capital and social capital;
access to and manage information;
awareness of the implications of climate change 
Yohe (2002)  
Factors influencing adaptive capacity of drainage pipe network Technology; infrastructure; management, etc. Semadeni-Davis (2004)  
Adaptive ability for communities in north-western Victoria Economic; socio–cultural; infrastructure–institutional Sietchiping (2006)  
Adaptive capacity of water management to climate change Education and wealth resources; knowledge and information; participation; equality of decision; experience, etc. Engle & Lemos (2010)  
Capacity of water safety institutions to flood risk Adaptive Capacity Wheel; variety; learning; room for autonomous change; leadership; resources; fair governance van den Brink et al. (2011)  
Resilience of urban drainage system under various rainfall events Response indicators; population density, traffic density, land use recovery indicators: relief availability, budget allocation, inundation subsidence Birgani & Yazdandoost (2016)
