Sweden and Ecological Governance

Manchester University Press

This chapter focuses on attempts to improve the effectiveness and integration of ecological governance in Sweden. It suggests that an environmental policy is fully integrated when it satisfies the three criteria of comprehensiveness, consistency and aggregation. It explains that effective integration means that environmental concerns are taken into account at all stages and levels of policy- and decision-making with as little sacrifice as possible in terms of time, money and human input. This chapter also discusses early signs of policy coordination and sectoral environmental responsibility and the common responsibility for sustainable development.

Keywords:   ecological governance, integration, Sweden, environmental policy, policy coordination, environmental responsibility, sustainable development
