The Logistics Cluster Global Meeting
6, 7 and 8 June 2016

Save the Children UK, GSK House, London

Background

The Logistics Cluster Global Meetings are held twice a year, and bring together senior logisticians from humanitarian organisations at the global level. These meetings provide an opportunity to discuss relevant Logistics Cluster operations, collect feedback from partner organisations on Logistics Cluster performance, present new initiatives and projects relevant to the field of humanitarian logistics and they have also served as a forum for strategic discussion concerning the further development of the Logistics Cluster.

Introduction to the Note for the Record (NfR)

This Logistics Cluster Global Meeting involved the participation of 66 attendees from a total of 44 organisations. The meeting agenda was based on sessions and discussions with an overarching theme of Preparedness, Goal One of the 2016-18 Strategy, as voted for by the Cluster partners. Partners’ preparedness projects were shared in addition to working group discussions, exercises and active participation to discuss and define the way forward for the Logistics Cluster Preparedness Strategy.
Time was also given to partner updates and action points raised in Budapest, facilitated through presentations, discussions and group sessions. This included the ongoing restructuring of the WFP Supply Chain division; the supply chain paper presented at the recent World Humanitarian Summit, Logistics Cluster financial reporting and an update on the Lessons Learned missions and findings from Ukraine and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
This NfR is organised to reflect the discussions as they took place during the Global Meeting in London and aims to summarise the key discussion points, and actions going forward.
