Relief assistance operation and its supply chain in humanitarian context require a high level of coordination and collaboration among national and local governments, military, large humanitarian agencies, local agencies, private partners, donors as well as volunteers. With the existing severe problems of coordination together with the increased frequency and magnitude of the upcoming disasters, the humanitarian relief supply chain needs to be conducted in a very complex and challenging condition to save more lives and alleviate the suffering.
In order to be more efficient and effective operation, all stakeholders are required to rethink towards the investment in logistics preparedness prior to the occurrence of the disaster. It has been proven that the logistics preparedness investment could result in a better coordination, while also giving the opportunity of expenditure saving with better operational performance as its return.
The focused session will jointly be hosted by HELP Logistics, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the Philippine Red Cross (PRC). An overview of multi-sector engagement in humanitarian operation will be shared, followed by practical issues and problems.
A concept of logistics prepared investment as an innovative solution to cope with those issues will also be discussed. The format of the focused session will be oral presentation by several speakers (i.e. both live as well as the recorded ones).
