Culture Mitigation

Cultural mitigation is a critical, but often overlooked component of Risk Mitigation. Globalization has resulted in multicultural environments in which different cultures encounter each other and frequently clash. Cultural mitigation examines the following areas to determine and minimize potential risks:

  • Cultural models/settings/practices/influences

  • Legal frameworks

  • Public policy

  • Cultural influences

  • Taboos (such as medical taboos)

  • Security cultures

  • Indigenous population attitudes & exploitation practices

  • Women/children opportunity restrictions

  • Women/children attitudes and treatment

  • Human exploitation practices

  • Water & Food Security practices (coordinated with Disaster Mitigation)
