Abstract
This master thesis explores the concept of ecosystem services, in the context of urban planning in Swedish municipalities, with the purpose of putting together a planning development tool for urban ecosystem services. The working process consisted of three steps: (1) to identify problems in the Swedish planning process, (2) to identify relevant aspects of ecosystem services and comprehensive planning, and (3) to find strategic sustainability frameworks to be used as a theoretical foundation for the planning development tool. Information was gathered through a literature study, workshops and regular meetings with officials at Malmö city. The combined data exposed problems in the planning process with working at different scales as well with... (More)
This master thesis explores the concept of ecosystem services, in the context of urban planning in Swedish municipalities, with the purpose of putting together a planning development tool for urban ecosystem services. The working process consisted of three steps: (1) to identify problems in the Swedish planning process, (2) to identify relevant aspects of ecosystem services and comprehensive planning, and (3) to find strategic sustainability frameworks to be used as a theoretical foundation for the planning development tool. Information was gathered through a literature study, workshops and regular meetings with officials at Malmö city. The combined data exposed problems in the planning process with working at different scales as well with the lack of communication between ecologists, planners and decision makers. Furthermore, in the comprehensive planning, there was a weak link between long-term sustainability goals, intermediate as well as short-term action and maintenance plans. It has therefore been relevant to try and find a way to strengthen this link and bridge the gap between natural sciences and decision-making. This thesis offers a possible solution to these problems by developing a new planning development tool adapted for urban ecosystem services. (Less)
