1. Cross-cutting Updates
• Webinars presenting WFP Emergency Service Marketplace (ESM) platform will take place on Tuesday, 19 May and Tuesday, 26 May. These sessions will introduce the process for registering on the platform, show participants how to log a request for cargo movement and explain the information that will be required. Please note that as of now, all requests for cargo movement through WFP Service Provision for the COVID-19 response must be submitted via the ESM. Prior to the webinar, all participants are invited to see the Concept of Operations, which can be downloaded here, as well as the FAQs about the services. Please also note that these sessions are for cargo requests only and do not address the passenger services provided by WFP Aviation. More information on passenger flights, including booking procedures, schedules and all other relevant information can be found on the Humanitarian Booking Hub.
