Comparative analysis and case briefs of preparedness and security of supply

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The CORE (sCience & human factOr for Resilient sociEty) project deals with
human factors and social, societal, and organisational aspects for disaster-resilient societies. CORE aims to identify and use best practices, knowledge, and
learnings from certain countries which experienced high levels of different
hazards (e.g., seismic, and volcanic risks in Italy). The overall objective of CORE is
to develop a harmonised vision of crisis management, awareness, and capability.
Thereby, Work Package 4 (WP4) focuses on three types of cascades that impact
the security of supply, including cascading events or disasters, cascading impacts
of disaster risk reduction (DRR) decisions across sectors, and cascading through
supply chain disruptions. The main aims of WP4 are to (1) map the causes of
detrimental impacts on the security of supply through these cascades; (2)
establish the directions and the links between events, sectors, and supply chain
disruptions; (3) produce a framework that assesses the risks of potential cascades
of DRR decisions across sectors events, and supply chains; and (4) raise
awareness for the impact of supply chain disruptions on the security of supply.
This report (Deliverable 4.2) presents a comparative analysis and case briefs of
preparedness and security of supply. We map how the security of supply is
organised within disaster management and discuss DRR frameworks of selected
EU countries (i.e., Finland, Sweden, Italy, and Austria). This report presents the
differences in preparedness and DRR mechanisms concerning pre-positioning,
training, framework contracts, and supplier management. We also discuss how
preparedness activities result in societal resilience in these case countries
