Developed by the World Bank, this training program is a “how-to” guide for conducting Supply Chain Risk Assessments (SCRA). It captures the experience and examines lessons learned since 2009 from analyzing risks to agricultural commodity supply chains in developing countries across Africa, Latin America and Asia.
More specifically, the training provides step-by-step guidance for development practitioners on how to best leverage SCRA as a tool for assessing critical risks and promoting evidence-based decision-making for improved supply chain risk management.
Risks are a permanent fixture of the agricultural landscape. They are also a stark reality for hundreds of millions of farmers, traders, processors, transporters, financial intermediaries, retailers, and other agricultural supply chain stakeholders who carry out a diverse range of activities throughout the continuum that links “farm-to-fork.” In one way or another, all of them are exposed to risks.
As a diagnostic tool for improved decision-making, the Supply Chain Risk Assessment (SCRA) is designed to promote broader awareness of supply chain risks and adoption of improved risk management measures and tools among development practitioners, supply chain stakeholders, and policymakers. It can help generate insights into 1) which risks have the most adverse impacts on livelihoods and overall supply chain growth; and 2) how can stakeholders best respond both on an individual and collective basis to better manage key risks. The assessment focuses on the types of risk, level and frequency of exposure, the severity of potential losses, and identification of appropriate risk management solutions.
