The city of Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, was taken by militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in June 2014. The Iraqi military launched an operation to counter this in October 2016 and since the start of the operation, some 45,100 families (270,600 individuals) have been displaced to IDP camps, emergency sites, host communities and out-of-camp locations.

 

The humanitarian response to this situation is complex and large-scale, due to ever-changing displacement patterns, a volatile operational environment, and security constraints.

 

In the midst of this, the Logistics Cluster continues to support the humanitarian community in their response through the provision of vital common services. Alongside transport and emergency... READ MORE

The Logistics Cluster’s strategy for 2016-2018 centres around Preparedness – this means focusing on national disaster resiliency and bringing together government, humanitarian, development and private sector actors. Six project countries were chosen by Global Logistics Cluster partners - Haiti, Madagascar, Indonesia, Nigeria, Myanmar, and Bangladesh. The Logistics Cluster is also involved in a long-running WFP emergency preparedness project in the Pacific region.

The north-eastern governorate of Al-Hasakeh experienced severe access disruptions in 2016. Landlocked and inaccessible from inside Syria since mid-2013 due to the presence of Islamic State of Iraq and Levant’s (ISIL) fighters controlling all key access routes.

The governorate remained cut off from humanitarian reach over the entire first half of 2016, leaving tens of thousands of families without access to critical relief supplies and humanitarian services.

With all in-country and international access points impassable, WFP, as lead agency of the Logistics Cluster, resorted to the establishment of an emergency air-bridge linking the capital Damascus to Qamishli, one of the main urban centres in Al-Hasakeh Governorate.

With more than 270,000 people already displaced from Mosul and another 600,000 estimated to still remain within the city, the need for emergency medical care continues to increase.

 

After a request from the Iraqi Ministry of Health, the World Health Organization (WHO) had 30 specially equipped ambulances procured in Dubai. With the support of the Logistics Cluster and through a WFP Aviation contracted-aircraft, the first 15 vehicles were airlifted into Erbil International Airport on 20 March.

 

These ambulances will be donated to a number of humanitarian organisations operating close to the front lines; they will be used for trauma care and to transport critically injured patients from conflict zones to trauma stabilisation points, hospitals... READ MORE

Suite à la mission du « Global Logistics Cluster » en République Démocratique du Congo (RDC) en janvier 2017, il a été convenu de la nécessité de réévaluer le support logistique fourni par le Cluster Logistique aux partenaires qui opèrent actuellement en RDC.

Dans ce cadre, un questionnaire a été mis à disposition des partenaires afin qu’ils puissent nous faire part des problèmes logistiques auxquels ils se trouvent être confrontés, ainsi que de leurs attentes vis-à-vis du Cluster Logistique. Ces informations permettront de rédiger la nouvelle stratégie du Cluster Logistique en RDC qui devrait être mise en place à compter de juillet 2017.

Ci-dessous, la synthèse des informations collectées et analysées :
