Risk management in a context of change (strategic, operational and technical)
Announcement in Brief
Risk has always been at the center of our day-to-day lifecycle. In the past 20 years, the world has been exposed to several shocks, notably: transition to year 2000 , financial crisis of 2008 , Ebola virus disease in 2014 and most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic. This has brought back the crucial role of risk management in particular when resources (human, financial, technical, etc.) are at stake.
The UN environment and more specifically, the African Economic Commission (IDEP mother institution) are exposed to various types of risks while it needs to mainstream its core values: Integrity, Professionalism and Respect for Diversity in the accomplishment of its mandate.
The training aims at making the participants accept and integrate the existence of risk, better equipping them with appropriate mechanism to identify, transfer and/or reduce the risk and monitoring and evaluation actions.
