  • how vulnerable communities are at risk of being impacted by supply chain disruptions;
  • challenges faced in mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery;
  • sustainability strategies for overcoming these challenges; and
  • examples of adaptive, resilient, and sustainable efforts undertaken by communities to lessen impacts and develop actionable policies, programs, and strategies.
