There are two questions often asked of risk communication: what has been learned from past work, and what is needed to push the field forward? Drawing on the experience of leading risk researchers and practitioners, Effective Risk Communication focuses on answering these questions. The book draws together new examples of research and practice from contexts as diverse as energy generation, human health, nuclear waste, climate change, food choice, and social media. This book treats risk communication as much more than the interchange of risk information between experts and non-experts; rather, it aims to emphasise the diversity in viewpoints and practices.

In each specially commissioned chapter, the authors reflect on the theoretical and applied underpinnings of their best projects and comment on how their approach could be used effectively by others. Building upon each other, the chapters will provoke new discussion and action around a discipline which many feel is neither meeting important needs in practice, nor living up to its potential in research. Through a more careful examination of the work already done in risk communication, the book will help develop better, more reflective practice for the future.

Louie Rivers III is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources at North Carolina State University, USA

Review:

"The book is an interesting mixture of practical, cookbook-style notes (a detailed instruction on how to make a risk communication video takes center stage in the first category), general research ideas, case studies, and more abstract communication frameworks. I think that anybody interested in risk communication will be able to find something of value. The editors promise a mixture of well-known and new faces on the risk communication scene and they do not disappoint. Effective Risk Communication authors are both newcomers and distinguished researchers in the field."Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management, Agnieszka D Hunka, University of Twente, the Netherlands
