Abstract


ABSTRACT

This note reveals the gaps from circular economy (CE) and resilience in the literature during COVID-19 pandemic. The disruptive event affects the circularity in the supply chain due to numerous single-use-products in food, health, plastic industries. The unsustainable production and consumption is harmful for social, ecological, and economic systems. The industrial practices need a highly resilient network to have better visibility and agility to shift sourcing. Prior studies reveal the gap that CE needs the resilient systems. Still, there is a need to conceptualize and models resilience in CE studies using quantitative and qualitative approaches.

Keywords: COVID-19 pandemic; circular economy; resilience in the supply chains.

ABSTRAK

Nota ini mendedahkan jurang lingkaran ekonomi (LE) dan daya tahan dalam literatur semasa pandemik COVID-19. Kejadian yang mengganggu ini mempengaruhi lingkaran dalam rantaian bekalan kerana banyak sekali produk sekali guna dalam industri makanan, kesihatan dan plastik. Pengeluaran dan penggunaan yang tidak berkelanjutan adalah mendatangkan keburukan bagi sistem sosial, ekologi, dan ekonomi. Amalan perindustrian memerlukan rangkaian berdaya tahan tinggi untuk mempunyai darjah penglihatan dan ketangkasan yang lebih baik untuk peralihan sumber. Kajian terdahulu menunjukkan jurang bahawa lingkatan ekonomi memerlukan sistem daya taham. Namun, terdapat keperluan untuk mengkonseptualisasikan dan memodelkan daya tahan dalam kajian lingkatan ekonomi menggunakan pendekatan kuantitatif dan kualitatif.

Kata kunci: Pandemik COVID-19; lingkaran ekonomi; daya tahan dalam rantaian bekalan.
