UNDP Risk Management Online Course

UNDP recognizes that mindsets and behaviors of individuals and groups inside the organization play a crucial role in the effective execution of ERM. A mature risk management culture is characterized by the following:  
  • Risk-informed decision making at all levels, including flexibility for adaptive management and course correction.

  • Responsible risk-taking and innovation is rewarded.

  • ‘Failures’ are acknowledged and recognized as part of the learning curve, particularly while operating in complex contexts.

  • Continuous learning for strengthened risk management capacities.

  • Key stakeholders are involved in all stages of the risk management process.

  • Absence of approaching risk management purely as a compliance issue.

  • Open communication on all risk management issues and lessons learned and a culture of “working out loud.”

  • Effective risk escalation when needed.

  • Adequate budget allocations for risk management at all levels.

  • UNDP personnel are enabled to ‘stay and deliver’ at an acceptable level of security risk.
