Participants will include HLA membership, especially those from the East Africa sub-region (both individuals and organizations’ representatives), and representatives from regional NGOs, private sector operators, universities, and the Kenyan Government. The event will comprise of an association summit, keynotes and presentations from thought leaders and sector experts and partner institutions, as well as an exhibition stand, where HLA management and volunteers will respond to queries from existing members and potential new ones.

The four break-out workshops will cover the following topics:

  • What are the key operational and relationship challenges active in the HL space?
  • What are the scope and priorities for the work needed to map, identify gaps, endorse and compile knowledge to form a humlog standards guide?
  • Climate change considerations: what is the role, challenge and opportunity for the humanitarian, private and public sectors to develop and manage eco supply chains?
  • Humanitarian Aviation: how can cross-sector connectedness and information sharing at the local level be improved?

The event is scheduled to run prior to and linked with the 7th Africa Logistics Conference and is sharing the same venue, so attendees can network with delegates from the ALC. We are expecting around 60-80 senior NGO attendees and are making a nominal charge to cover venue/refreshment costs.

We are looking for corporate sponsors for the event. If you are interested in receiving details, please contact us on
