Summary

The humanitarian logistics sector has a key role to play in enhancing the access to and benefits of aid for all in disasters, particularly those who are most marginalized within affected populations such as women, children, persons with disabilities, and the elderly.

Application of a protection, gender, and inclusion lens within the sector can mitigate identified gaps and barriers, increasing the speed and quality in meeting life-saving needs: for example, ensuring that safety audits inform distribution site locations and strategies to mitigate risks of gender-based violence, undertaking participatory assessments to pre-position supplies specific to the needs of marginalized populations, or engaging organizations of persons with disabilities to inform more accurate relief demand calculations.
