    Abstract

    The purpose of the project has been to analyze environmental planning processes, the application of scientific information in the form of mathematical models, as well as the identification of significant factors that can give raise to uncertainty and affect the structure and outcome of planning processes.
    Three different examples of environmental planning are presented, compared and analyzed. Uncertainty has been identified in the case studies as a central factor in planning. Three types of uncertainty is found; technical, structural and socio-political uncertainty. The project suggests a way of classifying the uncertainties present in order to be able to cope with these.
    The report represents the first part of the Ph.D. thesis on Environmental Planning and Uncertainty.
