Global value chains are becoming increasingly volatile due to ongoing disruptive forces, including climate change, pandemics and geopolitical tensions.

Based on monthly analysis of billions of data points provided by Everstream, disruptive events are identified through artificial intelligence before being evaluated and enriched by Everstream’s risk analysts. The barometer organizes the data by type of risk event, geographic scope, expected disruptive impact, and severity of disruption. The World Economic Forum, in collaboration with Kearney, conducted interviews with senior executives from various industries to discuss and refine the content and format of the Global Value Chain Barometer.
