International trade is vital to the world economy. Businesses that trade internationally are supported by interlinked global supply chains, which are vital to their competitiveness. But as a number of recent events highlight, these dynamic, complex systems are vulnerable to numerous risks. Because of their interconnectedness, even small, localized events can escalate rapidly and cause significant disruptions.


Phase I of the Supply Chain Risk Initiative (SCRI) culminated in the publication of the report New Models for Addressing Supply Chain and Transport Risk, which explored the supply chain risk landscape. And in tandem with the launch of the Phase I report at the Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, the U.S. launched its first Strategy for Global Supply Chain Security. This strategy aims to protect our global supply chains and calls for an increased multi-stakeholder dialogue. It emphasizes the need to foster a resilient system that can absorb shocks and recover rapidly from disruptions. 


Phase II of the Supply Chain Risk Initiative builds on this theme. This report endorses the requirement for a multi-stakeholder risk assessment framework and the need to build agile and adaptable strategies that will improve resilience and protect against a range of global disruptions.
