The aim of this paper is to develop an Information Systems approach that helps overcome the limitations of self-organised networks and enables coordination amongst its stakeholders. Developing Climate Change Adaptation Strategies (CCAS) often involves loosely connected stakeholders, which in turn results in a largely self-organised network. This is in stark contrast to Romsdahl's findings that the development of CCAS requires coordinated networks. In want for an appropriate means to coordinate the work of mainly self-organised networks; networked enterprises are examined to transfer its techniques into the CCAS domain. Workspaces and Portals are discussed and their potential role as an Environmental Information System (EIS) demonstrated. A case study on CCAS Regional Development is outlined to illustrate the concepts introduced.
