It’s indisputable that as soon as any project is authorised to proceed the risk to the sponsor can increase exponentially. All subsequent decisions regarding the project, including those to delay or stop it, ought to be taken in the knowledge that it’s the sponsor that almost always provides the backstop and is, in the end, the ultimate risk taker.
