Case Study 6: Rönne River Management Area

Rönne å catchment area is a river watershed located in Southern Sweden and includes lakes (e.g. Ringsjön), rivers (Rönne å) and marine coastal areas (Kattegatt). Institutions in Swedish water governance contain multiple actors on all scales: local (water councils, municipalities), regional (county administrative boards, water authorities), national (Swedish jurisdiction) and EU (water framework directive). This calls for knowledge about social-ecological complexity, best-practice water governance, and how cross-sector collaboration (or lack thereof) might influence environmental problems and essential ESS. In particular, Case Study 6 looks at the process of eutrophication and restoration of good water quality and their implications for the provision of ecosystem services along the Rönne å catchment.
