Overall Project Risk

In this step, project teams integrate their assessments of potential impact and adaptive capacity to arrive at a rating for overall project risk.
This step is organized by hazard to reflect the different levels of potential impact that each hazard may cause.
The risk ratings are done separately for Historical/Current and Future time-frames to account for possible changes in potential impact over time.
The rating scale for project risk looks like this:

Insufficient Understanding

No Risk

Low Risk

Moderate Risk

High Risk

The tool automatically summarizes the results of each step and the overall results in tables and presents them as a final report (in PDF) for the user.
Reminder: The final results of the screening, presented in the summary report, are designed to flag potential impacts and risks to projects from climate and geophysical hazards. These risk assessments may need closer attention during project preparation through further studies, consultation, and dialogue. The screening results are not sufficient to serve as the basis for decisions regarding detailed project design.
