The nature of risks affecting the global economy has changed over the past decade and continues to evolve. The Covid-19 pandemic is showing the economic consequences of social and environmental issues. This has raised questions about how future risks may be better identified and mitigated.
This session will discuss risk and mitigation in the agri-food system, and the role of circular economy principles in increasing the resilience of individual businesses within the overall system.
This masterclass series on Circular Economy is a collaboration between the University of York Management School and the York & North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
