Emerging dilemmas and risks in the changing context of water law, administration and management in Sweden

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper, not in proceeding

Abstract

The regulation processes and administrative legal institutions related to water resource management in Sweden are in a process of transformation. This transformation is related to factors regarding introduction of new laws, the emergence of new issues on the policy agenda as well as changes in the administrative procedures and responsibilities..The aim of this project is to map out the relationship between these factors and to analyse the effect of these factors on the involved administrations, as well as the effects on the implementation of the EU Water framework directive (WFD). A better understanding of these changes will increase the understanding of the content and character of the effect of the change in the different involved institutions as well as on how efficiently new laws such as the WFD can be implemented. This type of knowledge may promote a better organisational form for decision-making and adjudication when using the WFD in the future.
