The workshop will include presentations and discussion on:
  • The interfaces of the humanitarian supply chain with commercial organisations (local & international). Considering also links with civil protection/agencies and how to work together.
  • Managing the flows of materials (information and cash) and the requirements to understand local market contexts.

  • Main humanitarian use cases (ID, payments, supply-chain) with examples of each.
  • A demo/overview of a ‘wallet’ that uses Blockchain technology.

The workshop is being provided by Peter Jones, MD of Logistics Learning Alliance Ltd (LLA) and Alesh Brown, Humanitarian Blockchain, ID and Payments Specialist.
