Abstract [en]

To create a safe environment and ensure the well-being of its population, governments apply structured supervision to ensure that the environmental regulations are adhered to. The purpose of this study is to take a deeper look at the efficiency of how supervision in Sweden is carried out, and to compare it to a neighbour country, Norway, by comparing a Swedish municipality with a Norwegian municipality. The study was carried out by studying literature and performing interviews with a representative environmental inspector in each municipality. The results show that there are differences between the countries, both with regards to the regulatory framework and the organisation of its supervision. In Sweden the environmental regulations are concentrated in one Environmental Code, whereas in Norway there are 17 different mostly sector-specific laws that deal with the environment and its protection. Many of the tasks that are carried out by municipalities in Sweden are instead handled by sector-specific departments and/or by private firms in Norway. Inspectors in both countries wanted more guidance and assistance from central agencies. The study also found that it is difficult to compare statistics in both countries because of large differences in how those statistics are presented in the municipalities. The differences between the countries are hard to explain, and both approaches seem to work, but they want to have a more uniform environmental supervision in the future. Norway is also writing more and more environmental rules that apply across all sectors
