The OECD public governance policy paper, Framework on Management of Emerging Critical Risks, provides guidance for governments in developing processes for anticipating and managing risks with deep uncertainty. It supports the implementation of the OECD recommendation on the governance of critical risks, emphasising the need for preparedness through foresight analysis. The framework outlines a seven-step process for identifying, assessing, and developing strategies to manage emerging critical risks, described as transboundary, uncertain, and systemic. It advocates for a whole-of-society approach, focusing on the need for a collaborative and shared responsibility for characterising risk and building resilience against current and future challenges.
