Topic 2 – Risk Analysis
The purpose of this task is to give you some introductory experience in identifying Mechanisms and Outcomes and drawing risk analysis diagrams as a model of the Risk in question. The forms these logic diagrams take is important as they are used and understood in this way around the world, so don’t invent your own- use the forms of the diagrams explained.
