More than 30 logisticians from NGOs, standby partners, UN agencies and donors got together for the biannual Global Logistics Cluster meeting to discuss the latest developments in logistics response at the field level and to brainstorm priorities for next year's workplan.

Participants  presented the Logistics Operational Guide (LOG), Medlog training and the UNDP/DPDHL initiative - 'Get Airports Ready for Disasters'. The WASH Cluster also joined the meeting to talk about their global stockpiling project. Copies of the presentations and more details of the discussions can be found here below:

This is the first time that information on the Logistics Operation Guide (LOG) is published through this Logistics Cluster BLOG. If you are interested in following progress made in the development of the LOG please keep an eye on this BLOG – we intend to publish updates on a regular basis.

To refresh your mind on the goal and purpose of the LOG: The LOG is a tool that will serve as a single source of information, tools and templates on logistics in humanitarian emergencies. It will be based on established best practices.

The LOG is being developed following the endorsed work plan of the Global Logistics Cluster Support Cell (GLCSC) and aims at supporting all humanitarian logisticians.
