Risk and RACI: Defining Clear Roles July 15, 2014
Approach Understand the Top level components and clear subcomponents of the Risk Management Process applied to IRMS. Clearly bound the Knowledge/Evaluation and Monitoring functions Socialize function and scale divisions for groups evaluating existing system roles (including review of previous work)
CSA ISO Risk Management
Steps/Roles for Risk Management
Establishing the Context Definition: Defining the external and internal parameters to be taken into account when managing risk. Setting the scope and risk criteria for the Risk Management Policy. IRMS Context: Provincial strategies, commitments, policies with desired outcomes. Accountable/Responsible: Policy Makers Consulted: IRMS Partners Internal and External stakeholders.
Risk Identification Definition: Process of finding, recognizing and describing risks. Note 1: Involves identification of risk sources, events, their causes and potential consequences; Note 2: Can involve historical data, theoretical data analysis, informed and expert opinions and stakeholder needs IRMS Context: Gathering the sources of knowledge that will be considered in the Land Use Planning Exercise. Includes Example: Groundwater Quality – Regional picture (spatial) and historical baseline and future trends forecast. Accountable: Land Use Planners Responsible: Knowledge Generators Historical Baseline Future Forecast Time Groundwater Quality Indicators Regional Knowledge and Context for Groundwater Quality Indicators
Risk Analysis Definition: Process to comprehend the nature of risk and to determine the level of risk. – Note 1: Provides basis for Risk Evaluation and decisions about Risk Treatment – Note 2: Includes Risk Estimation IRMS Context: Forecast scenarios on the likelihood that hazards may impact on groundwater quality and the potential consequences. Depict visually by populating a risk matrix. Accountable/Responsible: Land Use Planners Example: Threats to Groundwater Quality LowMedium High Consequence Low Medium High Likelihood of Occurrence Hazards Consequences
Risk Evaluation Definition: Process of comparing the results of the Risk Analysis with Risk Criteria to determine whether the risk and/or its magnitude is acceptable or tolerable. – Note: Assists in the decision about Risk Treatment IRMS Context: Decisions about what activities are acceptable and/or can be tolerated based on a range of controls: policy, management, regulatory tools, monitoring. Intolerable Risk Level: Inadequate controls in place to reduce risk to acceptable level Tolerable Risk Level: Risks can be reduced with either current or future controls Acceptable Risk Level: Monitor and further reduce where practicable. Accountable/Responsible: Policy Makers Responsible: Land Use Planners LowMedium High Consequence Low Medium High Likelihood of Occurrence
Risk Treatment Definition: Process to modify risk. risk avoidance by deciding not to start or continue with the activity taking or increasing risk in order to pursue an opportunity removing the risk source changing the likelihood; changing the consequences; sharing the risk with another party or parties retaining risk by informed decision IRMS Context: *Decisions: Accountable: Policy Makers. Responsible: Land Use Planners Decisions on controls - strategies in regional plans environmental monitoring frameworks, regulatory, tools, policy. *Implementation: Accountable/Responsible: System Manager. Responsible: Regulators Implementing controls. Hazards Consequences Controls Preventative Controls Reactive/Response Controls
Monitor and Review Definition: Continual checking, supervising, critically observing or determining the status in order to identify change from the performance level required or expected. *Ambient: Accountable/Responsible: Knowledge Generators. Informed: Policy Makers, Regulators, Land Use Planners, Responders Ongoing monitoring evidence as to how the natural system is performing. *Performance: Accountable: System Manager. Responsible: Policy Makers, Regulators, Land Use Planners, Responders. Consulted: Knowledge Generators Ongoing review of the performance of the controls based on the ambient monitoring evidence.
Next Steps Within KETT/AEMERA Outside KETT
Within AEMERA Build out understanding and vision for what are IRMS needs for Knowledge and Evaluation and Monitoring – Focus on three areas of Accountability/Responsibility Risk Identification Monitoring and Review Communication and Consultation
Environmental Knowledge Requirements for Risk Identification Risk Analysis Process BIODIVERSITY WATER (surface and groundwater) LAND AIR Aquatic Habitat Quantity Quality Acid Deposition Emissions LARP Themes Disturbed Land Undisturbed Land Terrestrial Habitat Biotic Community Species at Risk Wildlife (Terrestrial) Aquatic Life LARP Sub-Themes Detailed List of indicators requiring knowledge and tailored monitoring
Environmental Monitoring and Review Requirements Acid Deposition LARP Themes LARP Sub-Themes Monitoring Plans Developed to Report against Regional Plan Indicators BIODIVERSITY WATER (surface and groundwater) LAND AIR Aquatic Habitat Quantity Quality Emissions Disturbed Land Undisturbed Land Terrestrial Habitat Biotic Community Species at Risk Wildlife (Terrestrial) Aquatic Life Risk Treatment
Environmental Communication and Consultation Requirements LARP ThemesLARP Sub-Themes Acid Deposition Monitoring Plans Developed to Report against Regional Plan Indicators BIODIVERSITY WATER (surface and groundwater) LAND AIR Aquatic Habitat Quantity Quality Emissions Disturbed Land Undisturbed Land Terrestrial Habitat Biotic Community Species at Risk Wildlife (Terrestrial) Aquatic Life Ambient Reporting (Both data and knowledge on Condition of Environment)
Outside KETT/AEMERA Understanding Existing Capacity – Ask Demarcation group(s) to screen existing work in terms of functions first then scale. – Knowledge Generator vs. Knowledge user – Subject matter expertise vs. Process owner – Knowledge/Context vs. Response/Action
Outside KETT/AEMERA Consider further building out RACI to look at functions within: – IRMS Partners – NRE Pod/GOA – Agencies and GOA-funded research and monitoring groups.
Decisions Agree on use of ISO Risk Management Process and RACI approach and terminology for defining functions at IRMS level AEMERA defined as the authoritative source for Environmental Knowledge for the Risk Identification process. – Continued work to build this out.
