WORKING WITH DG ECHO AS AN NGO PARTNER
4.5 ASSUMPTIONS AND RISKS
he partner will provide a brief description of assumptions and risks.
Assumptions are the expected positive external factors based upon which the Action has been planned, over which the partner has no direct control. (E.g. peaceful working environment).The non-occurrence of assumptions may impact the implementation of action.
Risks can be defined as foreseeable potential situations that might affect the implementation of the Action without, however, excluding its further implementation but requiring specific measures aimed at reducing such risks. Risks can also be seen as the probability that an event may adversely affect the achievement of the Action’s objectives, results or activities. Identifying the risks facilitates the request for modification and/or amendment. At this stage the partner needs to provide the information only as a list, as it will be automatically imported in the Logframe.
Assumptions and risks have to be monitored during the implementation of the Action. If the Action may be negatively influenced by a risk that will almost certainly materialise, mitigating measures to be taken must be explained in section 4.6. In certain cases, the Action should be redesigned or interrupted.
