  • Training for AdaptationDeveloping Adaptation Strategies: Handling Risk
  • Process Stage 2Developing Adaptation Strategies: Handling RiskHandling RiskThis module discusses the three main risk approaches:• Risk seeker• “best shot”• Risk Averter Climate Adaptation C.Aall & D.Davies, 2012Online Training Resource
  • Process Stage 2Developing Adaptation Strategies: Handling RiskDefinition and Context What is Risk? Standard definition Probability x potential threat = risk The basic problem when assessing climate change risks In most cases you do not know the probability for a specific climate change parameter at a specific location and a specific year. Thus; when talking about “risks” in a climate change vulnerability context, we are really talking about a potential threat. Climate Adaptation C.Aall & D.Davies, 2012 Online Training Resource
  • Process Stage 2Developing Adaptation Strategies: Handling Risk3 Basic Approaches• Risk seeker -Taking high risks and thus saving money on adaptation.• “Best shot” -The intermediate position between risk lover and risk avoider• Risk averter -Reducing risks as much as possible by means of adaptation.

  • Process Stage 2Developing Adaptation Strategies: Handling RiskWhat should be your risk approach? Example from Norway Equal probable Expected changes in precipitation in Sogn og categories of climate Fjordane by 2050 in relation to 1961-90 projections Low value - 5,8 % Avarage +10,3 % High value + 14,7 % Risk averter: Suggested by the Norwegian Public Committee on Climate Change Adaptation.
