History of SRA Africa

The African Chapter of the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA-Africa) was inaugurated in May 2019 in Cape Town, South Africa, after more than ten years of hard work and devotion. Our Constitution and By-Laws were finalized in September 2018. As African professionals, we had long wished for our own tools and capacities to conduct effective and transparent risk assessments and analyses and implement sound, fair, and effective risk management procedures.
