IHRR Seminar: Exploring the What Ifs: The Use of Scenarios in the Emerging Risk Landscape

11th December 2017, 13:00 to 14:00, W309, Geography, Kayla Strong, The Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies

The Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies researches how shocks can occur to the global economy and how businesses and society can improve their resilience. The Centre’s threat taxonomy provides a framework for understanding and tracking new emerging risks, and examining how these could disrupt our society’s functioning. One means of understanding these risks is through the use of scenarios, which the Centre has a history of developing. This presentation will propose a global risk taxonomy, describe the Centre’s scenario development process, and suggest how the use and scale of risk scenarios have the potential to evolve in the future.

This seminar is free to attend and open to all with no need to register to attend.
