Risk Management Process

The Risk Management Process used in the POPs Toolkit can be used for planning risk management activities on either a site-specific or a nation-wide basis.

The Risk Management process must be carried out within the context of the unique institutional mechanisms and circumstances of each country. Therefore, the guidance and broad suggestions presented in this module should be used and applied in a flexible manner.
