WATCH: FEMA Prep Talk on Aligning Public and Private Supply Chains Following Disasters

Dr. Jarrod Goentzel’s PrepTalk, “Aligning Public and Private Supply Chains for Disaster Response,” demonstrates how the private sector has far more capacity to respond than the public sector, explains the role of emergency managers in supporting private sector supply chain restoration, and shows how analysis of supply chains can help with strategic and tactical preparedness and operational collaboration during a crisis.

“Responses should incorporate and align with the private sector,” said Dr. Goentzel, “which has far more capacity to act.” Dr. Goentzel is founder and director of the Humanitarian Supply Chain Lab in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Center for Transportation and Logistics.
