Another aim of this chapter is to assess possible approaches to managing negotiated risks; that is, the search for an agreement in a negotiation that integrates accords concerning environmental risks as such with accords regarding abatement and implementation risks. Different categories of risk require somewhat different treatment and consensus. Therefore, negotiation strategists need to consider the possibility that an approach that is effective for dealing with one category of negotiated risk may have negative consequences for the management of another kind of risk. For example, a strong emphasis on the management of implementation risks in a negotiation may increase perceived abatement risks in the sense that some negotiating parties may prefer suboptimal technical solutions to a transboundary environmental problem if an optimal solution represents a binding commitment that is too far-reaching from a political point of view. On the other hand, a positive association between the management of different categories of negotiated risk is also conceivable.
