Abstract
This essay aims to investigate the physical planning practices that two Swedish municipalities are undertaking to protect themselves from rising sea-levels as an effect of global climate change. The physical planning practices undertaken by the municipalities will then be investigated regarding the three sustainability aspects (ecological, economic, social). The study will investigate if all aspects are prioritized equally or which aspect is regarded higher by each municipality. The two municipalities that this study focuses on are Kristianstad- and Vellinge municipality, with extra focus on the city of Kristianstad and Falsterbonäset within each municipality.
Despite different the geographical locations of the areas and the different... (More)
This essay aims to investigate the physical planning practices that two Swedish municipalities are undertaking to protect themselves from rising sea-levels as an effect of global climate change. The physical planning practices undertaken by the municipalities will then be investigated regarding the three sustainability aspects (ecological, economic, social).

The two municipalities that this study focuses on are Kristianstad- and Vellinge municipality, with extra focus on the city of Kristianstad and Falsterbonäset within each municipality.
Despite different the geographical locations of the areas and the different preconditions that follow the two municipalities use similar defense practices as part of their physical planning, and the concept of sustainability is a constant reminder in the work of both municipalities. One aspect of sustainability is prioritized more by both municipalities however, and true sustainable development is difficult to achieve when planning for rising sea-levels. (Less)
