Abstract [en]

Water is our most important natural resource. The accessibility of water is urgent in our society and the trend is evidently going to a more uncertain future. Since autumn 2016, preceded by few other affected municipalities, Örebro municipality experienced a water shortage and launched campaigns to reduce water consumption. This is due low water levels that make the municipality water supply difficult. This case study aims at describing how the municipality of Orebro manages water shortages and how the problem is presented by authorities in the municipality. By applying Bacchi's political analysis framework that  focuses on how the problem is represented, I want to increase the understanding of how a municipality presents water shortage, the effects this presentation contributes to, and see which solutions the municipality presents, long-term and short-term. The study's result shows that the problem is represented by the authorities as an acute issue, but it is not seen as a long- term problem to solve. However, this can contribute to increased awareness, which in turn can change behaviors as well as the connection to global environmental problems.
