How do you link short term decisions making to long term goals?

In my experience people normally do not adopt measures prior to a disaster, before it creates a serious effect on the project. How can we develop measures for getting key stakeholders to do this, by emphasizing not only the long term aspects of decision making, but also the short term benefits of doing so?

You do not need metrics. You need the decision are made. To do that you must put clear that stakeholders are the owners of the initiative, not the project manager or the project team.
Thanks Sergio for your feedback.

At the end of day it all comes to the cost required to be spent to avoid/ mitigate or transfer a risk. It's project managers job to bring the probability and impact of risk to the table. If stakeholders are willing to accept/ ignore the risk than it's their call.
I agree with the straight forward approach of Sergio.
Thanks Najam for your response.
