Risk Systemicity Questionnaire


The Risk Systemicity Questionnaire (RSQ) is an Excel based tool where users are asked to consider the relative likelihood of a broad range of risks in their cities, including the risks brought about and exacerbated by climate change. Based on the responses to the questions contained in each of the topics of the RSQ, participants are provided with a relative risk score (an estimated risk level for the city) and an awareness score (the level of knowledge the city has about the possible risk scenarios). In addition to this, users can access policy recommendations that may be used to address those risk scenarios that are of most threat to the city. The purpose of the questionnaire is for it to be used by groups of users with diverse areas of expertise so that it can prompt valuable discussions where different stakeholders’ experiences can be brought together to determine a city’s priorities to enable them to anticipate and appropriately respond to future challenges.
