A risk assessment is a process to identify potential hazards and analyze what could happen if a hazard occurs. A business impact analysis (BIA) is the process for determining the potential impacts resulting from the interruption of time sensitive or critical business processes. There are numerous hazards to consider. For each hazard there are many possible scenarios that could . risk and impact management, including those related to extreme events (DRR). FAO’s field experiences with DRM, supported by normative studies, revealed that there are few practical tools available to guide the analysis of national, district and localFile Size: 1MB.
