Negotiating climate change responses: Regional and local perspectives on transport and coastal zone planning in South Sweden.

Antonson, Hans LU ; Storbjörk, Sofie; Hjerpe, Mattias and Isaksson, Karolina (2016) In Land Use Policy 52. p.297-297
Abstract (Swedish)
tPutting climate change policy-integration into practice is challenged by problems of institutional misfit,due to, inter alia, deficient vertical administrative interplay. While most focus within the field of climatechange research has targeted the national–local interplay, less is known about the interface of regionaland local perspectives. Here, the aim is to study that interface with a specific focus on the relation betweenregional and local spatial planning actors, through a case-study of transport and coastal zone managementin a Swedish municipality. The article is based on interviews (focus group and single in-depth) andofficial planning documents. The material reveals a tricky planning situation, replete with conflict. Inpractice,... (More)

Inpractice, various institutional frameworks, claims and ambitions collide. The attempts to steer the localspatial planning initiatives from the regional level led to conflicts, which in turn seems to have hamperedthe overall work for climate change management through spatial planning. Furthermore, there are fewtraces of prospects of a smooth vertical institutional interplay able to support the overall aims related tointegrating climate change mitigation and adaptation in spatial planning.
