The impact of climate change on cities has increased the urgency of urban climate adaptations. As climate adaptation is now a prevailing aspect of urban planning in Denmark, municipalities, utility companies, and private actors are co-financing climate adaptation ventures. Climate adaptation has become a prevailing aspect of urban planning in Denmark, and planning for climate adaptation is now a co-financed collaboration between municipalities, utility companies, and private actors. Adaptation planning projects involve many different actors with different qualifications. This master thesis investigates how collaboration in network governance is employed in the planning of urban areas with respect to climate change adaptation. Consequently an empirical research project based on a case study of the collaboration of Sankt Annæ Projektet and is therefore contributing contextual knowledge. The analysis is based on qualitative interviews with main actors from Sankt Annæ Projektet, comprising the municipality of Copenhagen, the utility company HOFOR, the landscape architect company Schønherr, and the consulting engineering company Rambøll and the philanthropic association Realdania, which includes the established company Sankt Annæ Selskabet. The exploration is based on the collaboration governance theories introduced by Danish scientists Karina Sehested, Eva Sørensen and Jacob Torfing. The theory aids in the investigation of the often fractious private-public collaborative paradigm. Collaborative relationships in network governance are made fragile due to the opposing agendas represented by actors’ regulations. Realdania controls the collaboration process, which was undertaken during Sankt Annæ Projektet. Therefore Realdania undertake the municipality of Copenhagen's role in the planning process. The public interest are therefore not represented in relation to the municipality of Copenhagen. This investigation is therefore an example on a collaboration in network governance where the private actors overshadow the municipality's role in the network. The network governance method that demands alignment between differing agendas that adaptation planning requires.
