Understanding and Communicating Risks: Facts, Fears, and Fallacies

Related Tags

People face risks in their everyday lives. They make decisions that could have an impact on their safety, health, finances, well-being, and the environment. But often, their decisions are based less on evidence and objective probabilities, and more on their emotions, beliefs, and biases.

This four-day learning experience aims to provide managers and professionals in the private sector, as well as policy analysts and regulators in government, with a better understanding of their risks and effective ways to communicate them to the public. 

In partnership with the Lloyd’s Register Foundation Institute for the Public Understanding of Risk, the programme examines how a better understanding of risk and better risk communication can help to improve policy decisions and achieve better outcomes.
