Risk Management Framework: All Steps

Risk communication is defined as any two-way communication between stakeholders about the existence, nature, form, severity, or acceptability of risks. It is vitally important to understand the basic concepts of risk communication and to ensure that communication among stakeholders is integral to the risk management process. The focus of risk communication has evolved since the mid 1980ís, from concern about how best to inform the public about the technical aspects of risk assessments to a process of early and ongoing dialogue among stakeholders. While guidelines for risk communication have been prepared by various agencies, putting principles into practice is a long term process requiring considerable resources, time, and effort.
