To mitigate means to “make less severe, serious, or painful” (Oxford Dictionary, 2001). The termrisk mitigation” is used by some authors to incorporate risk handling approaches that do not just mitigate risk. Singhal et al. (2012) proposes three such “risk mitigation” approaches i.e. “Shaper” where efforts are made to avoid the risk, “Acceptor” where the risks and uncertainties are accepted and managed and “Recovery” which draws on continuity management and development of quick recovery plans. Simangunsong et al. (2012) refer to similar approaches under the banner of “Uncertainty Management” strategies. These include reducing uncertainty, acceptance and minimization of the impact of uncertainty, and mitigation (lessening the adverse effects of the outcome of supply-chain activities.
