Our work to date shows an urgent need to build the whole-system resilience of ports and global supply chains to withstand multiple drivers of disruption. We are inviting industry, practitioners and policy makers to work with us to deliver on this ambition.
“There is a very tense situation currently with a huge number of people dying every day from starvation, and 70% of our planet not yet exploited for food. Food safety is all about resilience”. Vincent Doumeizel from Lloyd’s Register Foundation, talks about education, innovation and the potential of seaweed.
The global supply of food is an incredibly complex system, involving multiple actors and a diverse value chain from production through to consumption. Every part of the chain is dependent on infrastructure systems. We share six principles for enhancing the resilience of food transportation systems from our contribution to Cereal Foods World.
Since September 2019, bushfires in Australia have burned through some 10 million hectares of land. The fires have made headlines globally. With many months to go in the fire season, what does this mean for Australia’s infrastructure, and are there wider lessons for the resilience shift?
Topical discussions at the UK Ports Conference echoed the findings of research into global supply chain dependencies on critical infrastructure.
Two new reports present findings from research into the dependency of global supply chains on critical infrastructure resilience
The movement of food around the world is an important reality of today’s globalised, urbanised and heavily populated world. Even small disruptions within the supply chain can result in cascading impacts that have negative consequences from farmers to consumers. The Resilience Shift’s focus is on the resilience of critical infrastructure systems, and we recognise that […]
Building resilience of critical infrastructure requires decision-makers working in different industry sectors to understand ‘what’ can be done, ‘why’ it should be done, and ‘how’ to put it into practice. Our work to date has told us that key stakeholders are often either unaware of the value that resilience can bring or are constrained by […]
