Abstract [en]

Network management has become important in flood risk management in Sweden. Previous studies on flood risk management groups has shown variations in focus among the groups (see Olausson & Nyhlén, 2017; Petridou & Olausson, 2017; Hedelin, & Hjerpe, 2015). Some of the groups has a societal focus while others has a more technical approach which means that different actors are participating depending on focus of the group. More knowledge is needed to understand the implications this has on network cooperation and the networks capacity to meet expected increase in flooding and high flows because of climate change. The study aims at explaining the consequences of the different approaches on cooperation within the network and the multilevel coordination of flood risk management. The theoretical approach of the study depart from theories of policy networks with an emphasis on the interaction between public and private actors. (see Rhodes 1996, 1997; Sörensen & Torfing 2005, 2007; Enander et.al. 2015; Wimmelius & Engberg, 2015) Two case studies are conducted of two river groups, Indalsälven/Ljungan and Ljusnan. While Indalsälven/Ljungan has a societal approach, Ljusnan has a more technical approach.

Abstract [sv]

Miljöpolitik och miljöproblem är två breda begrepp som omfattar flera olika typer av händelser. Gemensamt för dessa är dock att de har uppkommit genom mänsklig påverkan, utifrån den definition av begreppet miljöproblem som varit avgörande för miljöpolitikens utformning i Sverige. Definitionen utgår från begreppet hållbar utveckling och har sitt ursprung i Brundtlandkommissionens definition av miljöproblem och deras orsaker (WCED 1987). Som miljöproblem räknas således inte naturliga fenomen som vulkanutbrott, jordbävningar eller naturliga klimatvariationer.
