SRA’s core documents – Fundamentals of Risk Analysis, Core Subjects of Risk Analysis, and the Glossary – are available for download.
You’re invited to submit your abstract for presentations at this year’s SRA Annual Meeting, December 4-8 in Tampa, Florida. Abstract submission for the meeting is open until June 1.
There are multiple ways to present at this year’s Annual Meeting: abstract talk, poster, lightening talk, symposia, poster platform, and workshop. We welcome contributions on any topic related to risk assessment, risk characterization, risk perception, risk communication, risk management, risk governance and policy relating to risk.
Dr. David Johnson, professor of industrial engineering with a joint appointment of political science at Purdue University, joins Let’s Talk Risk to discuss his most recent work on the inequities and health impacts of flooding. States and communities struggle when thinking about how to better incorporate equity consideration into their planning process. To combat this, Johnson explains a new metric to evaluate projects that normalize the value of homes: treating all households the same. Instead of trying to prioritize projects based on protecting value, Johnson and his fellow researchers created an alternative metric that thinks about protecting households, irrespective of their value.
The purpose of this special issue is to stimulate and disseminate knowledge illustrating how COVID-19 challenges risk analysis at the fundamental level (e.g., by demanding answers when knowledge is still very incomplete, and perceptions differ widely) and/or advancing risk science knowledge related to such challenges; or demonstrating how the application of generic, foundational risk science knowledge can help to improve risk analysis practice related to COVID-19.
The Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) is a multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, scholarly, international society that provides an open forum for all those who are interested in risk analysis. Risk analysis is broadly defined to include risk assessment, risk characterization, risk communication, risk management, and policy relating to risk, in the context of risks of concern to individuals, to public- and private-sector organizations, and to society at a local, regional, national, or global level.
