National Risk Assessments

A Cross Country Perspective

image of National Risk Assessments

This report provides a synthetic view of national risk assessments (NRAs) in twenty OECD Member countries. NRA are used to support risk management decisions in a rapidly changing global risk landscape characterized by increasingly complex, interconnected societies and highly mobile people, information and goods. The report highlights good governance practices in establishing NRAs and how the results are used to inform public policy. It identifies challenges that OECD Member countries continue to confront in their efforts to implement NRA, and makes concrete recommendations where improvements could still be made.



The Netherlands

This chapter on the Netherlands outlines how the governance framework functions from a national perspective led by the Ministry of Safety and Justice and through a decentralised structure involving a myriad of stakeholders. The methodology presented in this chapter has been tried and tested for many years by the Netherlands and the involvement of subject matter experts from the public, private and academic sectors in the NRA process is seen as good practice. This chapter also discusses the methodology for hazard identification, impact analysis and, likelihood and plausibility analysis. The Government subscribes to transparency in the process in both the detailed results and methodology used for the NRA which is under constant review given the changing threat landscape.
