This report presents the results of the Evaluation of Humanitarian Logistics within EU CivilProtection and Humanitarian Action, 2013–17. The scope of the evaluation covers DG ECHOinvestments in humanitarian air services, in initiatives to improve systems for humanitarianlogistics, and funding to the logistics elements of DG ECHO projects. The evaluation took a broaddefinition of logistics, in line with the supply chain management approach increasingly adopted byhumanitarian organisations.The evaluation finds that DG ECHO investments in the period 2008–13 in logistics hubs, logisticstraining and support to the development of the Global Logistics Cluster all had lasting benefits,and that support to air services remains highly relevant. Given that a substantial proportion of DGECHO funding is spent on humanitarian logistics, the evaluation recommends that DG ECHOdevelop a humanitarian logistics policy and that the organisation gives greater attention tologistics within partnership agreements, as well as in its crisis assessment and planning tools.The report documents the key challenges facing humanitarian logistics and proposes actions forDG ECHO’s consideration of how the organisation can exercise further leadership in the realm oflogistics, working collaboratively with other humanitarian actors to achieve efficiencies andimprove results for beneficiaries of humanitarian action.
