Impact: Opinion piece in Dagens Nyheter leads to panel debate in Almedalen 2018

LUCSUS researchers Emily Boyd and Christine Wamsler, along with six other experts, recently co-authored an opinion piece on water in Dagens Nyheter. This sparked a number of reactions, not least from the Swedish Minister of Environment, Karolina Skog. It has also lead to a panel debate being organised at Water Forum during Almedalen, the democratic and political week taking place in July 2018 in Visby.

The opinion piece highlights the need to reform current water management and governance in Sweden since the current approach is contributing to increasing risk of flood and drought instead of creating synergies for sustainable development.
