Definition

Risk. A characteristic of a system or decision where the probabilities that certain states or outcomes have occurred or may occur are precisely known. Risk is a combination of the chance or probability of an event occurring, and the impact or consequence associated with that event. Decisions that involve risk are a special case of uncertain decisions where the probabilities are precisely known (UKCIP, 2013). Consider management of risk in the context of climate change.
