Abstract [en]

Climate change is one of the most challenging global issues today. Acknowledging no political or administrative borders it has to be tackled at all levels of society. This article focuses on how and to what degree Swedish municipalities cooperate with actors on different societal levels. How does politics, the levels of CO2 emissions and municipal resources affect the patterns of cooperation? The empirical material in this study is a survey conducted in the year 2005, a database with data from all Swedish municipalities, statistics from Statistics Sweden, the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. Among the conclusions are that the municipalities are involved in multilevel governance but mainly with other municipalities or other public actors. Politics and resources matter while CO2 emissions have less explanatory-power concerning the municipalities activities in co-operations addressing climate change. The state plays an important role in stimulating municipalities to address the issue of climate change.
