Managing volcanic risk to the supply chain

With 90 of the world's largest metropolitan areas located within 150km of a volcano, many cities stand to lose 0.5% of their GDP in the event of an eruption. Volcanoes pose a serious threat to businesses' production facilities as well as transport and communication routes.

As this StrategicRisk article shows, companies must assess the volcanic hazards that could impact their direct infrastructure and supply chain. They should take advantage of scientific data-driven risk modeling and draw up emergency response plans to build pre-disaster resilience and avoid reactive post-disaster management.
