The growing contribution of climate change to disasters is recognized worldwide. The integration of climate change adaptation (CCA) in disaster risk reduction (DRR) is crucial to ensure benefits for societies and the environment. This paper proposes Hybrid Governance (HG) as a valuable framework as we consider the CCA&DRR integration effort. HG is a set of subjects, goals and mechanisms constituting hybrid practices, which crosses state-market-community triad and is directed by the involved actors. This paper investigates the main actors involved in CCA&DRR integration within this triad, their relational mechanisms, and actions to be undertaken to improve the effectiveness of integration. The paper recommends the exploration of the relational mechanisms and actions in HG of the variety of actors involved in CCA&DRR integration. By framing the multi-actor characteristics of CCA&DRR integration in a HG framework, research gaps are identified and classified in the interests of driving scholastic and policy action on multiple scales and levels.
