Logistics and SCM in the context of relief for refugees and internally displaced persons
Conflicts, wars, and complex emergencies often trigger large-scale displacement. To assist humanitarian organisations in dealing with displacement, the Journal of Humanitarian Logistics and Supply Chain Management has selected highly relevant articles that tackle various aspects of delivering aid to internally displaced people and refugees. Thus, all articles in the special issue on “Logistics and SCM in the context of relief for refugees and internally displaced persons” are open access.
This free virtual issue facilitates learning from previous responses to displacement situations, including aspects of camp management and community-based camp design, local procurement, to cash-based initiatives to people of concern. Thereby, it provides a quick overview of an array of different response options and the state of the art of research on these from a supply chain perspective.
