Why does the Logistics Cluster have Working Groups?
Working Groups are aligned to the pillars of the Logistics Cluster Strategy 2016-2021: Preparedness, Network, Operate and Learn and created based on a requirement raised at a Global Logistics Cluster meeting. As outlined in the generic Working Group Terms of Reference, working groups are created for a limited period of time, have a specific ToR and designated lead. Working Groups focus on specific topics with the objective of fostering insightful discussions and collaboration. Membership of the Working Groups is voluntary, but requires engagement and additional workload. If required, Working Groups can share updates during the Logistics Cluster Global Meetings which are held twice a year. Updates may include assessing progress made on the Working Group objectives, in addition to partners reviewing the status of the Working Group. Please note, the Global Logistics Cluster provides a platform for Working Groups to share information, however the Logistics Cluster does not endorse the activities of individual Working Groups (unless endorsed following a dedicated vote at the Global Meeting).
