Risk and risk management are concepts that have also applicability in the tourism field. However,what makes special the case of tourism is the existence of a multitude of stakeholders in a tourism destination as well as the risk “exposure” of two different population groups with different needs:local community (residents) on the one hand, and tourists, on the other hand. The purpose of this paper is to present some theoretical considerations associated with the concepts of risk and risk management as well as to briefly illustrate different applications of risk management in tourism indifferent countries/regions in the world. These can be considered good practices in this field and can represent at the same time, models for similar applications for the tourism sector in our country.
