This research effort is exploring how countries can best protect themselves from civil emergencies, supporting public safety, economic growth, and environmental integrity.
The report, OECD Risk Management: Strategic Crisis Management is the result of a 2012 workshop in Geneva attended by forty government and private sector risk managers. With a focus on government-level strategic crisis management and drawing on case studies of particular systems, the report provides insights that can also be leveraged by private sector organisations. Key relevant topics include
- Strategic exercises and crisis preparedness
- Emergency planning: scenario-based vs. capability-based
- Crisis responses: command and control vs. adaptive capacities
- Leveraging expertise in the face of new or complex crisis events
- Frameworks for developing responses to novel crisis events
