The process of adaptation has also been conceptualised as a cycle. The adaptation risk, uncertainty and decision-making framework (Willows and Connell, 2003) was a one of the first publications to characterise adaptation and a cyclical, iterative process.  Within this cycle, “Monitor, evaluate and review” is identified a critical step, enabling new information and lessons to shape future decisions.  The concept of the adaptation cycle has been adapted into a range of support tools and frameworks now applied in a number of European countries (UK – see UKCIP 2005; Slovenia – see Cegnar, 2011; Germany – see the German Adaptation Support Tool[1]) and beyond. Most notably, this approach informed the development of the European Adaptation Support Tool (See figure 1.1) and the European Commission’s Guidance for National Adaptation Strategies (European Commission, 2013).

    Pg 16, last paragraph. I don’t know whether you look for more examples of using the policy/adaptation cycle. In the Netherlands this also occurs in such a way (see also PBL, 2015: Ontwerp voor een Nationale Adaptatiemonitor: Een monitoring- en evaluatieraamwerk voor de Nationale Adaptatie Strategie, Beleidsstudie, Bilthoven, 54 blz; )
