Global Logistics Cluster - Bi-annual Meeting in Nairobi

27 October 2010

The Global Logistics Cluster is holding a global bi-annual meeting in Nairobi, Kenya from November 8th to 9th.

World Vision LogoThe meeting will be hosted by World Vision International. The Logistics Cluster holds the global meeting twice a year to ensure the continued coordination and understanding between key Logistics Cluster participants. The WASH and Shelter Clusters will participate in order to discuss inter-cluster coordination issues.

In response to requests from participant organisations, the Logistics Cluster is holding its bi-annual meeting in Africa for the first time. It was felt that this could be an opportunity to bring the meeting closer to field operations, enabling more attendance from key Logistics Cluster operations in Africa.

The topics addressed will be varied in order to promote discussions and to ensure the active engagement by all participants. The following are some of the topics to be addressed:

  • Lessons Learned – from the last three emergencies
  • Upstream Pipeline
  • UN Disaster Assessment and Coordination (UNDAC)
  • Green Logistics
  • Shelter Cluster – linkages with Logistics Cluster
  • WASH Cluster – linkages with Logistics Cluster
