Focus on stakeholder involvement

Stakeholder involvement is a key component of the IRGC Risk governance framework. Involving stakeholders is helpful for assessing risk perception, concerns and opinions, for evaluating factors that influence decision-making, and for effectively managing risks.

In order to help risk assessors and risk managers, IRGC and expert partners at IASS have produced the guidance document “Involving Stakeholders in the Risk Governance Process”.

This guide:

  • Defines stakeholders and explains the importance of involving them in risk governance.
  • Outlines objectives that can be achieved through stakeholder involvement.
  • Provides general principles and methods on how to involve stakeholders.
  • Offers examples of successful stakeholder involvement in risk governance.
