What is Risk Management?
Risk management is the process of minimizing or mitigating the adverse risks and taking advantage of positive opportunities. It starts with the identification and evaluation of risk, followed by optimal use of resources to monitor, and minimize the risk.
Risk Management is a complex area for which there is a significant body of work to provide guidance. This portal contributes to the guidance and provides resources for the following two areas:
Risk and Mine Action
Managing risk is fundamental to every aspect of mine action. A starting point for effective risk management is awareness of its importance and constant association with everything that mine action managers do every day.
Risk and Ammunition Management
Managing risk is fundamental to every aspect of ammunition management.
