Description How has Ecology used risk to determine and evaluate program activities? Is our view of risk different now than 15 years ago? What should we do differently in the future?

One of eight issue papers prepared by Ecology staff in developing strategic plans to help move Washington in a new direction: a society in which waste is seen as an inefficient use of resources and many wastes have been eliminated, which will contribute to social and economic vitality and environmental quality.
