Our approach to future planning and risk management
We take a collaborative and proactive approach to planning and risk management to ensure we are well positioned to respond positively to future challenges in an agile and effective way which reflects the changing risk and demand in our communities. Our ‘Towards 2050’ approach seeks to take a longer-term view of the range of potential futures that may lie ahead and ensure we are resilient to whichever future becomes the reality.
We have a rigorous yet flexible process that permits the Service to assess and respond to opportunities and threats. The process must allow for adjustments as the environment in which we operate evolves.
The planning framework sets out the various sources of information which inform the planning process and the inter-dependencies between the various elements of planning strategy.
