Abstract
Research concerning the challenge of rising sea levels often leave out the importance of landscape and its history. When discussing present and future adaptations to local climate changes, e.g. sea level rise, an understanding of the process that shaped the area that exist today is an important aspect. Here Falsterbonäset is chosen as a case study focussing on three actors the regional planning office at the County Administrative Board of Skåne (CAB), the Vellinge municipality and a local nature protection organization (Falsterbonäsets Naturvårdsförening).

Research concerning the challenge of rising sea levels often leave out the importance of landscape and its history. When discussing present and future adaptations to local climate changes, e.g. sea level rise, an understanding of the process that shaped the area that exist today is an important aspect. Here Falsterbonäset is chosen as a case study focussing on three actors the regional planning office at the County Administrative Board of Skåne (CAB), the Vellinge municipality and a local nature protection organization (Falsterbonäsets Naturvårdsförening). The analysis is based on planning documents from the first two actors, historical documentations of the area and interviews with all actors. The results is that previous changes in the landscape limit the ability to choose paths of adaptations in accordance with previous research. The municipality is interested in protecting and expanding the economic value of Falsterbonäset while Falsterbonäsets Naturvårdsförening and the CAB are in opposition to such plans. The latter two are, however, in many ways positive to the protective measures proposed. Falsterbonäsets Naturvårdsförening is strongly advocating the cultural and environmental landscape of Falsterbonäset and strongly oppose the ongoing
trend of increasing exploitation of the area. The CAB follows their policy of no new developments below three meters above sea level. The discussion is filled with discontent and recent discussions have not showed any signs of improving the situation. (Less)
