The Logistics Cluster is responsible for providing logistics coordination, information management; and, where there is a gap in logistics, lead-agency WFP acts as a ‘Provider of Last Resort’ by offering common logistics services to support the humanitarian community in their response operations.
Highlights of the Operation
The common storage facilities in Bentiu are being finalized and are expected to be operational before the end of April. Currently, there is approximately 2,000 m3 of storage space available.
Roads are still physically passible in most locations. The humanitarian community continues to preposition cargo to locations across the country prior to the start of heavy rains.
The Logistics Cluster barge bound to Malakal/Melut is expected to arrive by 2 April 2015. Approximately 900 mt of humanitarian relief supplies have been dispatched on behalf of ten organisations.
The construction of the logistics base in Malakal is underway and is expected to be finalized by early May. Additional storage space will be available to the humanitarian community and access to the storage facilities will be significantly improved.
