Part 3: Good Practices on Risk Management and Risk Resilience:
The three practices described in this section of the report illustrate how risk mitigation and resilience-building efforts can be driven by one stakeholder or can progress through a broad-based multistakeholder coalition. From an emphasis on data collection and analysis in the case of the Murray-Darling Basin, to community building around resilience in the United States and risk communication in Germany, they show how responses to environmental risks can be based at the community, regional or national levels, and highlight the importance of knowledge and capability transfer.
Building resilience means finding ways to change behaviours across sectors and systems, identifying the barriers that must be addressed and the enablers that should be leveraged. Readers of the Global Risks report are invited to submit suggestions for practices on risk management or risk resilience to be featured in future editions of the report.
