From January to December 2017 the Logistics Cluster has supported 512 organisations, including national and international NGOs, UN agencies, foundations, civil society organisations and government agencies across 13 operations.
The Logistics Cluster enables global, regional and local actors to meet humanitarian needs.
Before crises, we work with the stakeholders in high-risk countries and regions to strengthen local capacities.
In crises, where local capacities have been exceeded, we provide leadership, coordination, and information, and facilitate access to operational services.
Globally, the Logistics Cluster is a community of partners actively working to overcome logistics constraints, and to develop and share best practices and solutions.
In March 2016 the Logistics Cluster was activated in Ethiopia to support the Government and the National Disaster Risk Management Commission (NDRMC) in their response to the worst drought in 50 years.
10.2 million people needed urgent relief assistance, so the Government of Ethiopia, with WFP, as the lead agency for Logistics Cluster, took immediate action to coordinate the logistics response and augment the available logistics capacity.
The main upstream point of entry for governmental, humanitarian and commercial cargo destined for Ethiopia is the Port of Djibouti, currently used for almost all imports and exports. The Port of Berbera (Somalia) and Port Sudan are two alternative points (see the map for more information).
