Risk management analyses the latest public policies, tools and practices of governments to address major risks. Through the sharing of country experiences, analyses are developed to draw-out criteria for the effective governance of large scale hazards and threats.
Recent global shocks, such as the 2008 financial crisis, have driven policy makers and industry strategists to re-examine how to prepare for and respond to events that can begin locally and propagate around the world with devastating effects on society and the economy.
The report looks at examples of hazards and threats that emerge from the financial world, cyberspace, biological systems and even the solar system, to reflect on what strategic capacities are called for to improve assessment, mapping, modelling, response and resilience to such large scale risks.
