Klimatfrågan inom Business Improvement Districts

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Linköpings universitet/Tema Miljöförändring

Sammanfattning: In 2009, a new form of model was introduced in Sweden; Business Improvement Districts - BID. The model enables collaboration between the public and the private sector and has in several places managed to achieve social and economic success. Due to the social successes and the proven benefits of public-private partnerships in relation to climate control, it will be interesting to examine the conditions for integrated climate considerations within the model. The purpose of this study is therefore, through a case study of Sofielund in Malmö to investigate how BID can function as a tool to promote climate adaptation in the existing settlement.  Qualitative, semi-structured interviews have been applied together with an inductive interpretive content analysis in order to answer the research questions of this study. This proves that social factors are prioritized within the BID model; an identified challenge is therefore to integrate and combine social and climatic factors in order to further develop the existing settlement. On these findings the recommendation is to work with multifunctional adaptation measures. Furthermore, the study shows that the residents of Sofielund are important for the implementation of climate adaptation measures. More on a balanced division of responsibilities between public and private actors is recommended. A greater influence among the residents is also fundamental in order to reach effective integration of climate aspects. Additionally, it is important to find a balance between jointly set goals and individual actor’s incentives. A final conclusion is that a long-term perspective is a significant factor for successful collaboration. Long-term perspectives in the process allow for climate aspects to grow within BID.
