The United Nations Humanitarian Response Depot (UNHRD) is a network of depots around the world (Ghana, Italy, UAE, Malaysia, Panama, Spain) that stores and manages relief items on behalf of the humanitarian community. Strategic stocks of emergency relief goods are available at any given time and, at the onset of an emergency, UNHRD is ready to dispatch immediately.
Currently, UNHRD provides logistics services and comprehensive supply chain solutions to 59 partners including the United Nations, government and non-governmental organizations. Partners can coordinate their efforts, prioritize dispatches to emergencies, lend and borrow stock among themselves, and benefit from immediate access to goods through a flexible sourcing structure.
To date, UNHRD has delivered a combined 2749 MT valued at 16.7 million USD of relief items in support of the ongoing crises in C.A.R., South Sudan and Syria and the surrounding regions.
