About the Supply Chain Risk Initiative

Welcome to the Supply Chain Radar

Trends such as globalization, lean processes, mass travel and the geographical concentration of production have made supply chain and transport networks more efficient, but have also changed their risk profile.

Working together with the world’s foremost academic, industry and government experts, the World Economic Forum launched the Supply Chain and Transport Risk Initiative in March 2011. Under this initiative "New Models for Addressing Supply Chain and Transport Risk" was launched by the Forum at Davos in January 2012. It highlighted the urgent need to review risk management practices to keep pace with rapidly changing contingencies facing the supply chain, transport, aviation and travel sectors.

The second phase of the initiative will focus on implementing the priorities identified in Phase 1 including:

  • Strengthening the framework for global risk assessment
  • Building the blueprint for global resilient supply chains
  • Improving trusted networks, transparency and data/information sharing across supply chains

The World Economic Forum welcomes you to share your insights on disruption, vulnerabilities, resilience and trusted networks via this online Supply Chain Radar. Your insights will contribute to build better models for supply chain risk management and resilience in the face of a variety of potential global disruptions.
