The recent droughts in Central Europe and unprecedented floods in Central Europe have revealed our vulnerability to extreme weather events. Besides climate change as a driver of more frequent and intensifying weather extremes, demographic change and socio-economic development exacerbate severe impacts. International frameworks for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation (e.g., SENDAI framework, EU Strategy on adaptation to climate change) acknowledge the critical need to integrate risk governance, communication, and operational mechanisms for coping with extreme climate events throughout the entire Disaster Risk Management cycle. In order to integrate current state-of-the-art governance approaches for improved knowledge integration by means of co-creative approaches towards user and stakeholder engagement and increased accountability, we first need to identify and analyze existing methods. Following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA), we have developed a protocol for a systematic literature review (SLR) and started the review process. This protocol describes the process of conducting an SLR to provide a state-of-the-art overview of risk governance and risk management approaches through stakeholder engagement and transdisciplinary knowledge co-production processes. The review will focus on the areas of climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR). The literature search will include scientific databases as well as grey literature. Eligibility and exclusion criteria are defined. Results will be synthesized qualitatively. Quantitative analysis regarding the occurrence of certain approaches should help to identify research gaps and develop a taxonomy.
