Special Issue "Risk Management as a Tool for Sustainability"
A special issue of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
Interests: risk management; sustainability; decision making; public–private partnerships
Risk management affects the sustainability of projects in the long-term. A better insight into the project risk during the planning stage ensures that projects meet their strategic goals. With the business focus shifting from short- and medium-term where projects were treated as ends, to long-term where projects are treated as means to achieving sustainability goals, the research community needs to reciprocate by examining the role of risk management as a facilitator of sustainability.
With a substantial body of knowledge on risk management, projects still struggle to meet their short- and medium-term as well as long-term goals. This calls for research that integrates the effect of risk on sustainability.
Thus, we invite you to submit papers to this Special Issue on integrated research on risk and sustainability on topics such as but not limited to:
- Relationship between risk and sustainability;
- Disaster risk management to ensure infrastructure sustainability;
- Theories and techniques on long-term risk assessments;
- Bias and heuristics in risk identification and assessment;
- The concept and management of secondary risk to ensure sustainability;
- Quantification and assessment tools for long-term sustainability risks;
- Response development techniques, mitigation measures, and options for long-term sustainability risks.
We welcome theoretical papers, case studies, opinions, quantitative models, and discussion papers on the above topics.
