This chapter will explore continued developments in the study of risk and risk management, with a focus for discussion on an increased understanding of evolutionary processes, and the development of insights into the nature and behaviours of complex systems. It will be argued that by taking a whole systems rather than a reductionist approach, our understanding and development of approaches to risk management can be improved, and the chapter will conclude with a case study to highlight some of the key issues.
