Strengthening Post-Hurricane Supply Chain Resilience: 
Observations from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria
This new report, from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, draws on lessons learned during the 2017 hurricanes, exploring future strategies to improve supply chain management in disaster situations. It makes recommendations to strengthen the roles of continuity planning, partnerships between civic leaders with small businesses, and infrastructure investment to ensure that essential supply chains will remain operational in the next major disaster. Focusing on the supply chains food, fuel, water, pharmaceutical, and medical supplies, the recommendations of this report will assist the Federal Emergency Management Agency as well as state and local officials, private sector decision makers, civic leaders, and others who can help ensure that supply chains remain robust and resilient in the face of natural disasters.
These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on January 8, 2020 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
