Summary
Disasters and complex emergencies are impacting a growing number of people. This second edition covers new developments in the field, and examines the responses of those responsible for organizing and distributing resources in dangerous and unstable environments. It explores: the application of commercial and academic models of process management and process improvement to the humanitarian logistics network, the introduction of information systems supporting the supply chain for NGOs, information management in inter-agency coordination, regionally-focused logistic challenges in developing South East Asian and African countries, the humanitarian-military interface, and lessons learned. --
