9780749470876: Humanitarian Logistics: Meeting the Challenge of Preparing for and Responding to Disasters

Against a backdrop of population increases, rising levels of urbanization, and the impacts of climate change, disasters and complex emergencies are impacting a growing number of people. This second edition of Humanitarian Logistics presents solutions to these challenges, covers new developments in the field, and examines the responses of those responsible for organizing and distributing resources in dangerous and unstable environments.

Chapter contributions written by some of the world's leading experts explore:
-The application of commercial and academic models of process management and process improvement to the humanitarian logistics network
-The introduction of information systems supporting the supply chain for NGOs
-Information management in inter-agency coordination
-Regionally-focused logistic challenges in developing South East Asian and African countries
-The humanitarian-military interface and lessons learned

Review:

"Don’t let the title and subtitle fool you. Although the topic is targeted, there are benefits to be gained by more than one reading audience. As the authors and their team of contributors point out, there are many commercial sector best practices that humanitarian logistics can benefit from." (Kelly Barner Buyers Meeting Point)

"I am really pleased to see the launch of this second edition.....Which includes contributions from a diverse range of humanitarian logisticians. Members of our community of practice will no doubt find the content of immense value." (George Fenton Humanitarian Logistics Association)

"Tatham and Christopher deserve credit for an outstanding, comprehensive manual for those in the field and those who wonder how professionals get emergency supplies into devastated areas. getAbstract recommends their illuminating compilation to NGOs, those
involved in humanitarian relief and anyone who handles logistics or risk management in other fields."
(getAbstract Inc.)

"This astute volume of essays should be compulsory reading for every person preparing to deploy into the humanitarian space. This rewrite is so comprehensive that even those who have read the first edition will benefit immensely from studying this book." (Steve O'Keefe Operations Manager - Bulk Haulage, Mountain Industries)

Praise for the previous edition:
"[F]eatures a reader-friendly layout with numerous tables and bullet points."  (BookNews Inc.)
