Preparedness saves lives and money during disasters and crises. Adequate preparednes by national actors can also significantly improve first response at the local and national level, and reduce the need for international mobilisation. This goal focuses on supporting the national logistics capacity of identified disaster prone countries.


Logistics Cluster preparedness focuses on six priority countries, chosen in consultation with Logistics Cluster partners. Partner organisations were requested to identify disaster-prone and at-risk countries that most urgently required support in augmenting national logistics response capacities, based on various risk indices and national-level logistics performance and capacity indicators. From an initial list of 30 countries, six were chosen that now form for the focus of Logistics Cluster preparedness activities
