Kommunala Berättelser om Integrering och Applicering av Grön Infrastruktur och Naturbaserade Lösningar : En studie av fem kommuner i Stockholms län (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Green terms to bring the greenery back to cities have frequently begun to be coined as a result of rapid urbanization. To emphasize the benefits of urban greenery, terms such as nature-based solutions (NbS) and green infrastructure (GI) have been raised in planning circles. This study aims to present municipal stories about how municipalities understand, integrate and apply NbS and GI in their planning documents and practices, and what challenges they face along the different levels of the Swedish planning system, which limit their application. The study is based on individual focus group discussions with five municipalities: Haninge, Nynäshamn, Sollentuna, Solna and Värmdö. The discussions are based on the same questionnaire, where GI and NbS application, understanding and integration from Swedish spatial planning are discussed. The study shows that knowledge and application of GI and NbS varies between the municipalities. The municipalities are also in unison that they need support and further guidance to increase application and understanding, as the Swedish planning system currently does not provide this. The municipalities that contributed to the study also talk about their different conditions for a wider application of green terms and working methods, as these are governed by economics and politics. For further research on municipal application, conversations with politicians can be initiated for their point of view on how greening concepts are received by them in the municipalities, as well as conversations with organizations and authorities that distribute information, municipal legislation and guidance.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie syftar till att presentera kommunala berättelser om hur kommuner förstår, integrerar och tillämpar NbS och GI i sina planeringsdokument och praxis, och vilka utmaningar de står inför längs de olika nivåerna i det svenska planeringssystemet, som begränsar deras tillämpning. Studien baseras på enskilda fokusgruppsdiskussioner med fem kommuner; Haninge, Nynäshamn, Sollentuna, Solna och Värmdö. Diskussionerna grundas på samma frågeformulär, där GI och NbS tillämpning, förståelse och stöd av svensk planering diskuteras. Studien visar att kunskapen och appliceringen av GI och NbS varierar mellan kommunerna. Kommunerna är också unisona i att de behöver stöd och vidare vägledning för att öka appliceringen och förståelse, då det svenska planeringssystemet i dagsläget inte tillhandahåller det. Kommunerna som bidrog i studien berättar också om deras olika förutsättningar för en vidare tillämpning av gröna termer och arbetssätt, då dessa styrs av ekonomi och politik. För vidare forskning om kommunal tillämpning kan förslagsvis samtal med politiker inledas för deras synpunkt på hur gröna planeringskoncept mottas av dem i kommunerna samt samtal med organisationer och myndigheter som distribuerar information, kommunal lagstiftning och vägledning.
