Cities' work with carbon neutrality : A text analysis of problem representations (English)
Abstract [sv]

I och med de ökade hoten från klimatförändringar har fler städer börjat arbeta med att minska sin påverkan på klimatet. Ett exempel på det är attsträva efter koldioxidneutralitet. Denna studie syftar till att undersöka vad som städer framställer som problem i arbetet med att uppnåkoldioxidneutralitet. Utifrån framing och Bacchis (1999) analysverktyg om problemframställningar samt tidigare forskning om städersklimatarbete, har de tre städerna Linköping, Köpenhamn och Melbourne undersökts. Dokument om städernas arbete med koldioxidneutralitet haranalyserats genom kvalitativ textanalys. Studien visar att energi och avfall är två frågor som ofta uppmärksammas och problematiseras av städermedan konsumtion och individers beteende lämnas utanför problemframställningen.

Abstract [en]

As a result of the increasing threats from climate change more cities have started to work with decreasing their climate impact. One example ofthis is to pursue carbon neutrality. This study aims to examine what the problem is represented to be by cities in their work to achieve carbonneutrality. Based on framing and Bacchi’s (1999) analyzing tool about problem representations, as well as previous research on cities and climatechange, the three cities Linköping, Copenhagen and Melbourne have been examined. Documents concerning carbon neutrality in the cities havebeen analyzed by the use of qualitative text analysis. The study shows that energy and waste are two issues that often are highlighted andproblematized by cities while consumption and the behaviour of individuals are excluded from the problem representation.
