Due to the recent changes in the environment, which have been highlighted by social issues such as particulate matters, humidifier sterilizers, heat waves and microplastics, various environmental risks have now become routine in our daily lives. As the environmental issues become more complex and information channels are diversified, laypeople’s perception of environmental risks in modern society is subjective and differs from individual to individual to a large extent. Based on the subjective nature of the risk, it has become an essential aspect of the policy process to identify risk perception of laypeople and formulate the adequate means of communication to improve the acceptability of the risk policies, while at the same time, raising the awareness and inducing the conducts of laypeople. To this end, two recent perception-based studies on climate change risk communication strategy have been reviewed to provide key suggestions for environmental risk communication policies, including enhancing perception analysis research, increasing awareness of scientific uncertainty, reducing psychological distance, improving selfefficacy, and improving accuracy of information. *This content has summarized and illustrated part of the "strategies for stakeholder engagement in climate risk Management” (2018) and the “Evidence-based Climate Change Risk Management Framework for Customized Adaptation ? Appendix: Perception-based Risk Communication Policy (I)”(2018) of the Korea Environment Institute (KEI), and intensified relevant discussions to provide implications and policy directions. Please note that some of the content has been published via the “Communication Strategies Corresponding to the Typology of Koreans’ Perception on Climate Change Risk,” 「The Korean Journal of Public Administration」, 28(1), and pp.1-31.
