What can governments and policy makers do to promote inclusiveness in risk governance?
Frame national policies for all-hazards risk management
Governments need to provide leadership with clearly articulated goals, and match their words with actions that supports identified priorities.
Engage the private sector in partnerships
The means to manage critical risks are not always in the hands of government. Partnerships that secure supply chains, reinforce business continuity, and foster the delivery of resources during emergencies are key.
Raise awareness of risks to increase stakeholder engagement in policy processes
The efficiency and effectiveness of risk governance is grounded in putting exposed populations on notice and providing them with the information they need to take protective measures.
