SUPPLY CHAIN RISK MANAGEMENT and optimisation FOR RESILIENT CITIES
With both cities and urban populations continuing to grow rapidly in the 21st century, it is essential to maintain a secure supply of goods and energy. Supply chains encompass the path products (e.g. petrochemicals) take from source to consumer.
Furthermore, anthropogenic climate change will lead to an increase in both frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, such as flooding, storms and heat waves. These extreme events can interrupt supply chains, putting cities at risk of severe indirect economic losses.
This projects aims to develop a supply chain model with three main focus points:
- Identifying the parts of a supply chain at risk of interruption, as well as the frequency of extreme events.
- Quantifying the impacts that these interruptions have on cities.
- Investigating mitigation tactics which can be applied to hedge against the damages done by interruptions, such as additional energy storage, or specialised insurance policies.
