  • Risk Assessment
  • Topic Outline:
    • Risk / Disaster Risk
    • Assessment
    • Community Risk Assessment
    • School Risk Assessment
    Basic Definition Components of Risk Assessment
    • People’s Perception of Risk
    • Hazard Assessment
    • Vulnerability Assessment
    • Capacity Assessment
  • What is Risk ?
    • The chance that if we do something or fail to do something, there will be a negative outcome.
    What is Disaster Risk ? Likelihood or probability of a hazard striking a vulnerable community, causing injury, damage and loss. R = H x V / C
  • What is Assessment?
      • A participatory process involving
      • on-the spot collection ,
      • interpretation and analysis of
      • information from various sources
  • What is Community Risk Assessment?
      • A participatory process which
      • involves the identification and
      • assessment of hazards, vulnerabilities
      • and capacities.
      • It involves understanding how
      • people in the community perceive
      • and measure disaster risk.
  • What is Community Risk Assessment?
      • Involves analysis of past patterns of
      • hazards and present threats at the
      • community level (hazard assessment ),
      • combined with an understanding of the
      • underlying causes of why hazards become
      • disasters (vulnerability assessment)
      • and of the available resources an
      • affected community uses to reduce risk
      • (capacity assessment) , and how
      • different people perceive and
      • measure risk (perception of risk).
  • What is School Risk Assessment?
      • Involves analysis of past patterns of
      • hazards and present threats at the
      • school level (school hazard assessment ),
      • combined with an understanding of the
      • underlying causes of why hazards become
      • disasters (school vulnerability assessment)
      • and of the available resources an
      • affected school uses to reduce risk
      • (school capacity assessment) , and how
      • they perceive and measure risk
      • (perception of risk).
  • Purpose of School Risk Assessment
    • Unites the school in having a common understanding of disaster risk – hazards, vulnerabilities and capacities
    • Basis for identifying appropriate and adequate risk reduction measures in the school
    • Contributes to awareness raising about the risks in the school which they did not know before
    • Baseline data on the situation of the school which can be used to evaluate the results of preparedness project or activities
    • Data generated can be used in situational analysis which can be used for project proposals
    Purpose of School Risk Assessment
  • Components of School Risk Assessment
    • People’s Perception of Risk - understanding the perception of risk of different groups and sectors of the community
    • Hazard Assessment - assessing the nature and behavior of hazards
    • Vulnerability Assessment - identifying the particular elements at risk and why they can be damaged
    • Capacity Assessment - identifying how people’s survival or coping strategies and what resources can be used in disaster management activities (before, during and after a disaster)
