This document provides an overview of the logistics services being offered by the Logistics Cluster to all humanitarian actors, for the coordinated movement of humanitarian assistance to those affected by the crisis in Côte d’Ivoire.
The objective of these services is to provide – in an efficient, coordinated manner – assets, facilities and services, to ensure an uninterrupted supply chain of life saving relief items to the affected population.
As provider of last resort, these services are not intended to replace the logistics capacities of the agencies or organisations but rather supplement them through the provision of common services.
These services will be offered for a limited period of time, initially until the end of June 2011 and may be withdrawn earlier, in part or in full, for the following reasons:
- Changes in the situation on the ground;
- No longer a perceived need for prioritisation, facilitation and/or coordination;
- Funding constraints.
This document will be periodically updated to match the developing logistics environment and to meet operational needs. Please check for updates at: http://www.logcluster.org/ops/civ11a
