The AGILE Project

Agnostic risk management for high impact low probability events

 

Over the last decades, the risk landscape has changed substantially due to new and emerging risks such as climate change, cyber threats, infectious diseases and terrorism. Unpredictable high-risk events described as “High Impact Low Probability” (HILP) events confront governments, businesses and decision-makers with new challenges, including the definition of where responsibilities lie.

AGILE

To address the existing challenges, the European funded project AGILE (AGnostic risk management for high Impact Low probability Events) will develop a theoretically and empirically grounded definition of HILP events as well as practical tools and methodologies required to improve the societal resilience towards such events. HILPs are described as “events or occurrences that cannot easily be anticipated, arise randomly and unexpectedly, and have immediate effects and significant impacts”.

Project Objectives

Objective 1

Conceptualise (WP1) and empirically analyse (WP2) HILP events and build a broad, multidisciplinary knowledge base for their implementation in DRR and DRM.

Objective 2

Co-develop a novel and scalable methodology for tiered risk and resilience stress tests (STs) with DRM practitioners and other key-stakeholders (WP3).

Objective 3

Enable European and international DRM practitioners in identifying common point of failures in typical HILP risk patterns through the co-development, implementation and evaluation of tiered risk and resilience STs (WP4).

Objective 4

Improving the societal resilience towards HILP risks through novel and evidence-based planning, capacity building and communication approaches (WP5).

The AGILE Consortium

The AGILE consortium comprises of Universities, Research Centers, NGOs, first responders, local, regional & national authorities.
