The Population Council conducts research to address difficult issues facing people in the developing world – from stopping the spread of HIV and improving reproductive health to ensuring that youth lead full and productive lives. Through biomedical, social science and public health research in more than 50 countries, the organisation works with partners to deliver solutions that lead to more effective policies, programs and technologies that improve lives worldwide.
Due to their politically sensitive work in the regions in which they operate, the Population Council must take steps to identify and mitigate the risks facing their people. We worked with their leaders to assess risks across eight categories as well as develop and implement a customized, robust approach to risk management that will help to ensure the council can continue to carry out their critical research and development work. In particular, we helped educate key stakeholders about enterprise risk management, collaborated on creative ways to improve organisation-wide recognition of risk and implemented a customized risk-management structure. We have helped the Population Council undertake their pioneering research with greater confidence that they are safeguarded against potentially serious threats.
