The Logistics Cluster Induction Training (LCIT) is designed to familiarise participants with the Logistics Cluster by providing an initial experience of the cluster approach in an emergency setting. This training provides information on the following topics: the cluster approach, the humanitarian reform, the mandate and functions of the Logistics Cluster. Participants are also informed about the potential logistics constraints and bottlenecks in a humanitarian response, and how to overcome them. The LCIT varies in format and can be facilitated through a combination of desktop and simulation exercises.



3.5 days (adaptable to suit audience requirements).
