Answer to question 2


I work in a agri-commodity trading company started by a Indian company manufacturing tractors. The top management of the company do not have agri trading background and therefor do not realize the importance of risk management in agri trading.

i would want formation of a risk committee to evaluate various risks like currency risks, credit risk, quality risk etc. I would want adoption of the Value at Risk model which will give weight to these risks and arrive at proper risk mitigation measures that will benefit the company in the long run and make expansion into agri sector a success for the company.

If the proposal is not accepted then the company will run the risk of getting into losses and going bankrupt.

Answer to question 3

Multi agency coordination is so challenging during an emergency because the environment in the emergency management takes place is highly dynamic. The emergency incident is highly complex, and complexities arise because of the agencies and people working together are from diverse backgrounds, competencies, knowledge, procedures and skills. The lack of coordination is another of the prime reason due to which multi agency coordination is so challenging during an emergency. 

Recommendation to improve multi-agency coordination:

a. Usage of artificial intelligence tools to translate into official language in order to language barrier issues. 

b. Smart devices and sensors can be worn by field responders that will be sent to the software agents, allowing task identification, and proper coordination. 

c. A resource manager can be recruited in order to assess the resources best suited for completing a specific task.
