An All Hazard overview of potential disasters and threats in the Netherlands

The National Risk Profile (NRP) provides periodically (four-yearly) an all-hazard overview of the risks of various disasters, crises and threats with a possible destabilising effect on Dutch society. Furthermore, the NRP describes technological, societal and international developments that could threaten national security and indicates how risks are expected to develop in the medium-/long-term. 

The NRP has been compiled by the National Network of Safety and Security Analysts (ANV), tasked to do so by the Ministry of Security and Justice on behalf of the National Steering Committee for National Safety and Security. Next to the Clingendael Institute, this network consists out of:

  • The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM)
  • Research and Documentation Centre (WODC)
  • General Intelligence and Security Service of the Netherlands (AIVD)
  • The Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO)
  • Erasmus University Rotterdam, Institute of Social Studies (ISS)
