Disasters and emergencies Switzerland: risk report 2012

Source(s):  Swiss Federal Office for Civil Protection (FOCP)

The present Risk Report 2012 documents the first results of the national risk analysis for disasters and emergencies in Switzerland and illustrates the procedure to elaborate the analysis. This involves identifying the spectrum of possible hazards, developing specific scenarios, analyzing their impacts in a sophisticated manner, and assessing the likelihood of occurrence for the scenarios described. The initial phase concentrated on a selection of 12 hazards that are primarily managed by security policy instruments (civil protection, armed forces, intelligence services, etc.), either separately or jointly. The Risk Report 2012 therefore does not present a final analysis of all relevant events in the field of civil protection, but shows how the goal of a continuous analytical process for disasters and emergencies can be achieved in a joint and collaborative approach. With the national risk analysis the FOCP develops a crucial basis for preparedness planning in Swiss disaster management.
