Risk assessment


A risk assessment is a strategy for determining the type and level of risk by analyzing potential hazards and assessing current vulnerabilities that, when combined, could harm exposed people, property, services, livelihoods, and the environment on which they rely.

A review of the technical characteristics of hazards, such as their location, intensity, frequency, and probability; an analysis of exposure and vulnerability, including the physical, social, health, economic, and environmental dimensions; and an evaluation of the effectiveness of current and alternative coping capacities in relation to likely risk scenarios are all part of risk assessments (and risk mapping). A risk analysis process is the name given to this set of actions.
