Sammanfattning: The world faces significant climate changes with potential societal disruptions and risks to critical infrastructure like railways. This study explores the topic of climate change, extreme weather, and changing travel patterns for Swedish railways. It describes the vulnerability of the railway system with emphasize on the need for climate adaptation. It also includes a comparison between Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) and British Network Rail's climate adaptation efforts. The study employs literature reviews and interviews, revealing the railway's vulnerability to climate change in combination with increasing popularity and strained capacity. It stresses the importance of both physical and organizational climate adaptation efforts, suggesting an evaluation of Trafikverket's organizational strategies. Based on available material, Trafikverket seem to lack a clear climate adaptation strategy in contrast with British Network Rail's more comprehensive approach. Additionally, the study scrutinizes selected Swedish railway plans, exposing inconsistencies in addressing climate risks compared to other risks, such as those related to land-use planning. This indicates a lack of guidelines for integrating climate risks into railway project planning, leading to project inequalities. The thesis highlights challenges in understanding Trafikverket's approach and proposes the need for systematic climate adaptation plans in Sweden to drive concrete adaptation measures. Conclusively, the study advocates for a comprehensive climate vulnerability analysis for the Swedish railways, integrating capacity utilization assessments to prioritize effective measures.
