The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) has been tasked by the
Government to outline a national risk assessment based on the European
Council’s conclusions for risk assessments in the European Union. In the
report, the MSB accounts for the work on the national risk assessment and for
the available information about the national risk assessment.
This national risk identification is a presentation of the work so far, and a first
step in the process of developing a national risk assessment in Sweden.
Emergency preparedness in Sweden is to a large extent based on the activities
of actors at the local, regional and central levels of society, who handle threats,
risks and vulnerabilities in Sweden. Later on in the process, the MSB aims to
supplement these levels with a national perspective.
