How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Studies on developing social enterprises suggest that resilience can be achieved through supportive stakeholder relationships and networks in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. This ecosystem is important for social enterprises as they are confronted with uncertain and complex conditions emerging from their pursuit of both social and commercial objecti...
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to severe disruptions in the supply and demand channels of agriculture and food chains. To begin to address challenges arising from this pandemic, the “Agriculture and Food Supply Chain Resilience in the Face of a Health Crisis” project emerged as an initiative of the Agriculture Food Special Interest Group of the Syst...
COVID-19 has caused severe agriculture and food supply chain disruptions, significantly affecting smallholder farmers who supply most of the world's food, specifically their changes in vulnerability, resilience, and food loss and waste. Therefore, the objective of this study was to understand the complex causal and feedback relationships for this s...
Social enterprises operate in an entrepreneurial ecosystem, which is complex and non-linear in nature. This ecosystem is a combination of not just the actors but of social, political, economic, and cultural elements that form part of the risks of starting, funding, and supporting development and growth of social entrepreneurship as ecosystems are a...
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to severe disruptions in the supply and demand channels of agriculture and food chains. As a fundamental approach to addressing complex social, managerial, economic, or ecological problems, system dynamics models have been used to provide a shared understanding of agriculture and food systems resilience and to enhance...
Studies on the entrepreneurial ecosystem have been developed in literature, such that various models have been proposed identifying a list of actors and attributes. While these contributed to theoretical development of entrepreneurial ecosystems, these models have not been able to address the emerging issue of interdependencies, which help create and reproduce the overall ecosystem. Feedback-guided analysis using the cultural adaptation template is applied towards developing conceptual models to help in understanding interrelationships in the ecosystem aimed at relationships between and among cultural, environmental, political and social factors as well as the identification of leverage points for the achievement of both commercial and social objectives.
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to severe disruptions both in the supply and demand channels of the agriculture and food chains. As a fundamental approach to address complex social, managerial, economic, or ecological problems, system dynamics models have been used in the literature to provide a shared understanding of agriculture and food systems resilience and to enhance decision-making for policy actions. This project has been initiated by eight system dynamics researchers from different countries of the world in order to begin to address arising challenges posed by the pandemic.
