This is "an account of variable responses from Swedish municipalities in terms of both adaptation and mitigation measures. By looking at the relationships between national and municipal policies, Langlais examines the adaptation barriers and acknowledges the role of 'visionary individuals' in some municipalities for initiating local actions unders similar institutional and governance conditions. He analyses the effects of two subsequent national plans that encouraged the municiplities to actively engage in mitigation measures. These incentives gave major impetus to the development of networks of eco-municipalities and those engaged in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The author argues for the role of planners in building knowledge and expertise at local levels to face the challenges of climate change" (quoted in the Introduction to Part 3, by Abid Mehmood, pp 219-221, in the same volume).
