Training Manual Published
The F4R™ team has worked hard to compile a comprehensive training manual for participants who wish to learn how to leverage the F4R™ process to build resilience in their communities. This training manual is a guide for the F4R™ process. It contains suggested activities and content that promote learning, research, and action focused on supply chains. It includes key references, activities, and visuals intended to help promote systems thinking, collaborative problem solving, and productive discourse through engagement between and leadership by community stakeholders. It is intended for a diverse set of participants and includes material ranging from introductory to expert. Follow this link to purchase.
From July 21-23, FEWSION for Community Resilience™ will be hosting an in-person facilitator training workshop at NAU. The event will kick off at 8 am each day and will last until 5 pm. This 3-day F4R™ Facilitator Training includes immersive curriculum orientation, modelling of data collection and community engagement tools, and critical resources needed for implementation of F4R™.

The F4R™ team was published on July 7 in Nature, a prestigious environmental journal. The article is titled “Supply chain diversity buffers cities against food shocks”. In brief, the article demonstrates that diverse supply chains are resilient against shocks regardless of cause, including food supply chains in US cities. This approach is helpful for designing national and city level supply chain resilience. Read the full article here.
