Climate change vulnerability in Sweden

Climate change vulnerability in SwedenClick on the image above for high resolution view
Sweden's main vulnerability to climate change relates to increased precipitation and sea-level rise, particularly as a result of extreme weather events. The main risks are coastal erosion, mudslides and flooding. Some of the areas most susceptible to these risks are investigated in the 2009/02 issue of Effekt magazine in an article featuring maps of southern Sweden (Skåne) and the cities of Malmö and Gothenburg, including the Göta Älv valley.

Set of maps prepared for the second issue of the Swedish climate magazine Effekt, published in 2009.

These four maps prepared by Nordpil accompany an article on Sweden's vulnerability to climate change. The illustrations cover such risks as sea-level rise, coastal erosion and mudslides for southern Sweden (Skåne), the city of Malmö and western Sweden (including Gothenburg).

Data and background information were collected from municipal and national sources, with collaboration from the magazine's editorial team.

ESRI ArcGIS and Adobe Illustrator were used to prepare the map.
