ACDC hydro

GeoViable is Work Package leader and reference group coordinator of this three year project led by Uppsala University. The project is focused on the implementation of the Swedish National Plan for Modern Environmental Provisions for Hydropower (NAP) where we explore how to effectively manage complexity despite conflicts of interest in the collaborative processes and court proceedings carried out as part of the environmental permitting process. This is done through an interdisciplinary collaboration combining procedural and environmental law analysis with environmental governance and sociology research.
