Abstract [sv]

Uppvärmningen av klimatet resulterar i att havsnivån stiger globalt. Detta riskerar att få omfattande sociala, ekonomiska och ekologiska konsekvenser, i synnerhet för områden som angränsar mot kusten. I Sverige har kommunerna planmonopol och förväntas ta ett stort ansvar för klimatanpassning. I Stockholm antas havet stiga cirka 0,5 meter till år 2100 och det kommer troligtvis att fortsätta stiga efter det. Denna studie bygger främst på intervjuer i syftet att utreda huruvida det råder konsensus mellan stadens planerare och politikerna i Stockholms stad gällande hur hantering av en förhöjd havsnivå bör ske. Frågan är relativt ny och i ett spekulativt stadium vilket gör att det är svårt att se tydliga skiljelinjer. Samtliga personer som ingått i denna studie är dock överens om att problematiken kring ett stigande hav är en viktig fråga i behov av mer djupgående utredningar. Även att det i slutänden kommer att bli en samhällsekonomisk analys som blir avgörande för vad, när och hur något ska genomföras. 

Abstract [en]

The warming of the climate will result in rising sea levels globally. This is likely to result in widespread social, economic and environmental consequences, especially for areas adjacent to the coast. In Sweden the municipalities have a monopoly for planning and the municipalities are expected to take a substantial responsibility for the city’s adaptation to the new sea levels. In Stockholm, the expected sea level rise is approximately 0.5 meters until 2100 and the sea is expected to continue to rise after 2100. This study is based on interviews with the purpose to investigate whether there is consensus between the city planners and the politicians in the City of Stockholm in how the management of the rising sea levels should be handled. The question is relatively new and rather in a speculative stage which makes it difficult to see clear dividing lines. However all interviewees in this study agreed that the problem of rising sea levels is an important issue that is in need of more in-depth investigation. Although it will ultimately become an economic analysis that will determine what, when, and how something should be implemented.
