Change lives by using Additive Manufacturing to address challenges in disaster management & recovery

The world’s most vulnerable people tend to suffer the most in crises, whether we are talking about natural hazards (e.g. hurricanes, earthquakes) or manmade conflicts (e.g. war refugees). Their housing or source of livelihood/income may be impacted by a disaster or their essential needs (e.g. food, water, sanitation) may exceed the local capacity. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has made it even more difficult to prepare for or respond to crises because of disruptions in movements of people and goods, and the need to ensure health safety measures were respected.

From improving disaster resilience efforts to revolutionizing the humanitarian response supply chain, disruptive technologies have the potential to play a critical role in disaster preparedness, response and recovery.

How can we apply Additive Manufacturing to strengthen disaster preparedness efforts, reduce the impact of disasters, support response and early recovery efforts to build the resilience of the local communities and thus save lives and livelihoods?

A major contribution in the green transition is to produce circularly rather than linearly. To get there, we must consider using Additive Manufacturing, but how?

Linear production is probably the most well-known production method although it is not the most sustainable solution. In order for us to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, we must resolve this challenge of producing in a circular way instead of linear.
Additive Manufacturing possesses a potential to support this process of moving away from a linear production towards a circular one. However, we still need to figure out how to achieve this.

In a business manner, we must take into consideration where to start, which materials that would be optimal to use, how to design a supply chain for this and how a circular production can create end-to-end value for the respective customers.

In extension to this, the circular challenge is following; How can you, by utilizing Additive Manufacturing, go from linear to circular production and create end-to-end value?
