Vatten känner inga gränser: En studie om planerares upplevelse av ansvarsfördelning och samordning gällande klimatanpassning

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för ekonomi och samhälle

Sammanfattning: Gothenburg is a waterfront city. Due to climate change, this proximity to water leads to an ever-higher risk of flooding. If nothing is done, the city risks severe economic and social consequences due to flooding. To reduce the risks, there is a need to adapt and implement measures for flood protection. The responsibility for climate change adaptation is divided between national authorities, the County Administrative Board, the municipality and property owners, and coordination is required to implement the necessary measures. Previous research, however, indicates that the coordination does not work, and that the division of responsibilities is unclear. The purpose of this thesis is therefore to investigate how planners at the municipal level feel about the division of responsibilities and coordination between the above-mentioned actors. Improvement measures are also investigated. The reason why the municipal scale is examined is that the municipality has an overall responsibility for critical societal functions in extreme weather events, and is also responsible for planning future infrastructure. It is therefore important to highlight the planners' reality, as they have a large part in the planning and implementation of flood protections. The data in the thesis has been collected through five qualitative interviews.The results show that planners feel that there are both barriers and strengths in the work with climate change adaptation and flood protection, linked to the current division of responsibilities and collaboration. The main barriers are perceived to be legislation, land ownership, financing and relations between the actors involved. The main strengths are seen as the progress made in recent years, the relationship with the County Administrative Board and the networks in which the planners participate. Improvement measures that are highlighted include a change in legislation, increased organization, more support from the national level and a clearer financing model
