Webinar 4: Lessons from COVID-19: In-depth Reflections on Innovations in the Supply ChainLessons from COVID-19: Positioning Regional Food Supply Chains for Future Pandemics, Natural Disasters and Human-made Crises presented a new virtual webinar opportunity on April 21st, 2022 where researchers will reflect on supply chain innovations and discuss strategies for the future of food supply chains.
The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted supply chains, compromising core functions of providing safe and appropriate food to people and distressing the livelihoods of individuals and businesses. Researchers are exploring the extent to which regional food systems can effectively augment mainstream supply chains to meet the nation’s food needs, with a focus on ensuring the economic security of our small-scale operations. Researchers are seeking to generate knowledge and resources to enhance preparedness of the U.S. agrifood supply chains for future disruptions.
Lessons from COVID-19: Positioning Regional Food Supply Chains for Future Pandemics, Natural Disasters and Human-made Crises is one of 17 projects nationwide to receive funding through a new program area of the USDA’s Agriculture and Food Research Initiative, targeting rapid response solutions to the pandemic through applied research, education, and extension activities.
