Abstract [en]

Scania, the southernmost region in Sweden, is facing a changing climate, and even if we limitcarbon emissions the climate will continue to change. Increasing amounts of precipitation, butalso an increased frequency of heavy rainfall, drought and increased temperature are examplesof some consequences, but it is uncertain how these will affect water supplies. To understandthe whole picture of the climate adaption, we have to reach out with information, knowledge,advice and together during training courses, seminars and workshops incorporate climateadaptation efforts. The basis of this project is a telephone interview with Scania´s 33municipalities over with the contingency contained in a changing climate. Work on coastalerosion and flooding risks to coastal communities is fairly well inventoried, but equalattention has not been given to threats and risks that exist to our water, especially drinkingwater. Many times an alternative water supply does not exist if current supplies are impacted.Municipalities must plan for our water resources in the long term, because safe and securedrinking water supplies are needed today and in the future. An important part of climateadaptation efforts is the establishment of water supply plans, in order to ensure the long-termsupply of drinking water. The plan should include two main parts; the first part is an inventoryof water resources and water conservation for current and future drinking water supply andthe second part is action-oriented and based on the first part with an inventory of the potentialimpacts and threats to these resources.
