Many potential risks can be eliminated or reduced by adding or altering a strategy element. For example, you may be considering ‘hiring park guards’ to increase protection of an existing national park that houses endangered species. Through creation of a results chain, the team realizes that hiring guards from only one local community presents the risk of creating inequality and conflict among communities. You could avoid this problem by changing the strategy to ‘hiring park guards with equal representation from local communities’, which mitigates the risk of creating inequality. In cases where risks to vulnerable people cannot be mitigated, the strategy should not be pursued. When a risk emerges that is potential, but acceptable to stakeholders, it should become the focus of intensive monitoring and adaptive management.
