Humanitarian Logistics in Emergencies

September 10, 2019 @ 9:00 am - September 16, 2019 @ 5:00 pm AEST

RedR Australia is running a course on 10-15 September 2019 in Victoria (220 km north of Melbourne). Logistics is at the heart of all emergency operations. It encompasses the movement of goods and equipment, the relocation of disaster-affected people, transfer of casualties and the movement of aid and relief workers and volunteers. Approximately 60 – 70% of funding in each emergency is spent on logistics, highlighting the need for effective and efficient systems. Providing humanitarian logistics training to local emergency response workers is an effective part of disaster preparedness planning. If you are looking to build a career in the humanitarian sector, logistics is an in-demand skill.

This course is an introduction to humanitarian logistics and is suited to a wide audience. Experienced logisticians will benefit from the broader application of logistics to a humanitarian setting such as natural disasters, conflict and refugee situations, building a knowledge bridge for deployment to humanitarian operations. It is also ideal for anyone involved or interested in working or volunteering in the humanitarian field to gain an understanding of this critical area of humanitarian work and would suit those interested in building a career in the sector. Training local emergency response workers in humanitarian logistics is an effective disaster preparedness strategy.
