The Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management is headed by Director General Jakob Granit. He is responsible to the Swedish government for the Agency's activities.
The Director General is supported by internal leadership which helps coordinate the Agency's mission for the government.
The Director General is also supported in his work by an advisory council which serves the public's interest. The council is only an advisory body and has no decision-making authority.
Each member is appointed by the government for his or her specific competence. The council's mission is to ensure transparency in the Agency's operations and to provide advice to the Director General.
