Abstract [en]

Climate change will most likely cause marine ecosystems and human living conditions to change in the areas bordering on the sea, rivers and its delta. As a result of these changes with significant resource shortages, there are obvious risks that conflicts arise between peoples' groups or other spheres of interest. Conflicts in which Sweden, alone or most likely in an international context, may play a vital role in ensuring that the conflicts do not escalate. It would be a political prestige loss from a Swedish perspective not having the ability, despite the political intention, to be able to contribute to an international effort with the task of dampening or preventing an escalating conflict in a water-dominating area. To be able to operate in coastal environments such as rivers and its delta, the right capabilities and material are required. The scope of the study aims to describe how an amphibious unit capabilities and technical systems affect the outcome of a Riverine operation. The scope of the study is achieved through a qualitative text analysis of research reports, articles and literature that deals with Riverine operation as a concept. The theoretical framework consists of the first theory of military technology and the Swedish Armed Forces systemic-view. The analysis tool is derived from the concept DOTLMPFI. Doctrine, Organization, Training, Leadership and education, Materiel, Personnel, Facilities and Interoperability. The study's findings and conclusions indicate that a military unit’s capabilities and technical systems that enables it to work in an area over a longer period of time, in order to achieve the purpose of the operation, are factors for success. A part of this is the ability to use unmanned crafts, sensors and a flexible organizational structure that enables a situational awareness in a complex environment such as rivers and its delta. Furthermore, the degree of interoperability of the unit is something that will also affect the outcome of a Riverine operation as it, as a concept, usually involves other branches of the military and nations.
