Appendix A: Risk Context Analysis Worksheets

Appendix A of the Climate Change Adaptation Toolkit.


Activity 1: Detailed Risk Activity

Risk name:
  1. Who or what will be affected by the risk?  Consider what system, asset or group of individuals will be affected?  What is the attribute that may be affected?  What is the boundary of the risk?
  2. What is causing the risk?
  3. Why is the organisation exposed to the climate change risk?
  4. Are there any assets, communities or locations particularly sensitive  to the risk?
  5. Does the risk affect the organisation’s objectives/ obligations/ strategic directions? If yes, describe.
  6. What is the time period of the risk?
  7. Does the risk potentially reinforce or exacerbate existing social disadvantage or inequalities? If yes, describe.
  8. Are there already preventative measures in place that would help deal with the risk (either  implemented  by the organisation or another entity)? Describe. Where relevant, how have they performed?
  9. Is the organisation prepared for or capable of dealing with the risk impacts now? Describe.
  10. Linkages – which other organisation/departments/community groups/sectors have either responsibility  for or an interest in this risk? Should joint management be considered?
  11. How often should this risk or class of risks be reviewed?

What is causing the risk?   Yes/no      
Why is the organisation exposed to the climate change risk?   Yes/no      
Are there any assets, communities or locations particularly sensitive to the risk?   Yes/no      
Does the risk affect the organisation’s objectives/ obligations/ strategic directions? If yes, describe.   Yes/no      
What is the time period of the risk?   Yes/no      
Does the risk potentially reinforce or exacerbate existing social disadvantage or inequalities?   Yes/no      
Are there already preventative measures in place that would help deal with the risk?   Yes/no      
Is the organisation prepared for or capable of dealing with the risk impacts now?   Yes/no      
Linkages – which other  organisation/ departments/community groups/sectors have either  responsibility for or an interest in this risk?   Yes/no      
How often should this risk or class of risks be reviewed?   Yes/no      



Outcome

  • Does this uncertainty result in re-prioritisation of risk
If yes, what is required?
  • Does uncertainty mean additional research or work needs to occur?
If yes, what is required?
