Introduction to the Note for the Record (NfR)
This Logistics Cluster Global Meeting involved the participation of 50 attendees from a total of 48 organisations. The meeting agenda was developed in collaboration with the Logistics Cluster Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) and was based on feedback from the previous meeting. The theme of the meeting, as selected by Logistics Cluster partners and the SAG, was “The Changing Context of the Humanitarian Sector.” The meeting was facilitated through presentations and discussions, and included sessions focused on the current status of implementation of the 2016-18 Strategy, an update on SAG activities since initiation, current status and overview of Logistics Cluster operations and finances, market place sessions where partners presented innovative projects, and an academic market place where representatives of the academic community presented research topics relevant to the humanitarian community.
This NfR is organised to reflect the discussions as they took place during the Global Meeting in Washington DC, and aims to summarise the key discussion points and actions going forward. Additional meeting documents, including presentation slides, the participants list, and survey results are available below.
