Guide to the Risks & Options Assessment for Decision-making (ROAD) Process

The ROAD process was developed by the FE2W Network to enable decision-makers to comprehend and address complex risks. It is a participatory, systems-based approach to risk assessment that allows the integration of different tools and types of knowledge.

This Guide to the ROAD process was developed for facilitators and decision-makers, but it is equally of value to anyone interested in understanding and managing risks. The document outlines a series of steps that can be adapted to a range of decision-making contexts.

Version 1.0 of the Guide reflects lessons from pilot applications of ROAD in four regions of the world. The FE2W Network will continue to develop and revise the process over time.
