Every State is responsible for assessing the internal and external threats that it could potentially face. To do so, relevant authorities within the State need to perform a national threat assessment based on an “all-hazards approach” that includes environmental and economic threats, as well as organised crime and terrorism.
The environmental threats typically include extreme weather events that could lead to flooding, structural damage from high winds and wild fires after prolonged droughts and are usually anticipated some time in advance allowing warnings to be given to the public. Attempts are also made to anticipate the threat from earthquakes and volcanic eruptions though these are less predictable, despite the best efforts of scientists that study them.
This Best Practice Guide clarifies the use of key terms, puts the threat of terrorism in context, describes the relationship between threats and risks, reviews the processes used to assess threat intelligence and highlights important considerations for how the threats and risks can be communicated more effectively.
