Recent research on risk diversification is characterized by a strict dependence of risk on the natural environment. At present, the relationship between humans and the environment is the most important subject of consideration, and any changes taking place in the environment are the subject of an increased interest in it. Indeed, the concept of risk and decision-making in conditions of uncertainty about future events is still important, but in the mainstream, the relationship of risk with the environment in which humans live and treating the risk from the point of view of the global perspective becomes more important. Contemporary risk management is therefore characterized by increased social awareness and multilayered issues, while at the same time, the research is interdisciplinary. Despite this awareness, it has not yet been possible to develop a single risk research concept or a universal definition of risk. We can safely say that it is just the opposite. Risk research has to a large extent become an area of formulating contradictory research paradigms and contradictory goals and assessments. This does not mean, however, that in a few years this will not lead to positive solutions in this area, both for the benefit of humans and the environment in which they live.
