As a global practice we have made substantial progress in developing new approaches to understanding risk; from collection of new data to new approaches to modeling and communicating risk information. This progress has enabled decision makers from across the globe to embrace evidence-based decision making. However, we acknowledge that we do not adequately model and communicate future risk, so actions today can influence the future. Moreover, triggering action – either at policy or community level – through communication of risk information remains a universal challenge. This session will highlight experiences and innovations and will explore how to achieve a revolution in risk information where risk information is targeted, authoritative, trusted, robust, open, understandable and ultimately used to positively change our future.
