- Climate issues have so far been focused on floods and flood protection and it is also a big problem, but while the risk of sea level rise is great, the risk of drought and dry periods is also a big problem, says Irene Bohman who is director of water management for the southern Baltic water district.

According to the consultation on the Baltic Sea that is currently underway, it is about a future higher temperatures in southern Sweden, which may result in both drought and floods, due to heavier rainfall and reduced access to drinking water.

According to the Swedish Water Agency, the water district of the southern Baltic Sea is particularly exposed to water shortages, the greatest risk being in south-eastern Sweden and Öland and Gotland.
