Background: The IASC country endorsed a note recommending the activation of the logistics cluster end of last week which is followed by a formal request from the HC to the ERC. During the cluster pilot phase in Uganda the establishment of a logistics cluster was not necessary, however for the current flood emergency response with its complexity and access issues, the commencement of a logistics operational coordination mechanism was recommended.

This first meeting focussed on sharing information on planned flood response from an operations/logistics point of view as well as on logistics concerns.
