Risk Communications

The literature review found:

  • There is extensive evidence for risk perception and some evidence exists for risk messaging, communication channels, and developing communications
  • Much of the literature focuses on high-level principles of risk communication without sufficient detail
  • Further research needs to be conducted on concrete actions to be taken and the appropriate level of detail for risk practitioners
