Document type:
Documents & Publications

Risk-informed development allows for development to become a vehicle to reduce risk, avoid creating risks and build resilience. Only resilient development can become sustainable development; sustainable development initiatives will fail unless they are risk-informed. Risk, resilience and sustainability knowledge and actions need to go hand-in-hand.

This publication analyses risk in a rapidly changing world, explores why development choices matter, examines complex and interconnected risks, discusses avenues for becoming and acting risk-informed and evaluates next steps for enabling risk-informed decision approaches for resilient and sustainable development.
