The County Administrative Board (CAB)
The County Administrative Board (CAB) is the national government representative office in the county of Östergötland. CAB has a broad area of responsibility concerning environment, nature, competence sourcing, the business community, social development, animal protection, infrastructure, and housing. Our task is to coordinate these and other areas of public responsibility to achieve efficient solutions for a sustainable society. The County administrative boards have overall responsibility and a coordinating role for regional action programs to achieve the Swedish environmental objectives (e.g. a non-toxic environment). CAB performs environmental monitoring and is also responsible for, e.g. the implementation of the Water Framework Directive and Marine Strategy Framework Directive at the regional level.
