Experts expect more supply chain problems due to increased frequency of natural disasters

Natural disasters, which became more frequent against the backdrop of climate change, will create a new threat to world supplies in the near future. This is the opinion of various experts cited by Bloomberg. At that, the matter concerns not an isolated crisis in the sphere of supply - the elements will cause many serious disruptions, Jason Jay, senior lecturer at MIT's Sloan School of Management (he is also director of Sustainability initiative at the mentioned school) says. Even if cataclysms occur in a certain region, they can negatively affect the whole supply chain in a short time, as demonstrated last year. Crises will occur unpredictably in different parts of the globe, Jay predicts. Over time, their number will increase, Bloomberg quotes Mekala Krishan, climate risk expert at Mc Kinsey Global Institute.
