Analyzing and Evaluating Risk

About this lesson

This lesson shows aspects of risk and risk assessment to consider when implementing an impact-based forecasting (IBP) approach in a meteorological office.

You are in charge of writing the forecast in the fictional country of Tiziki, where PBI’s approach is being adopted for the first time. After a description of the different parts of the risk matrices, you will learn to evaluate each of them by the impact tables and in light of their knowledge of the local effects. Your goal is to prepare two different forecasts with risk matrices based on the same hazard covering both regions of interest.
