How Supply Chain Management Can Save Lives - Press Release

Supply Chain Management for Humanitarians (9780749474683)1st August 2016 - Supply Chain Management for Humanitarians: Tools for Practice 

How Supply Chain Management Can Save Lives

On 25th April 2015, an earthquake erupted in Nepal . 9,000 people dead. 650,000 families displaced. 2,400 injured. With more people dying from natural disasters every year, the need for humanitarian aid is never greater. Logistics is often overlooked, but it actually plays a crucial role in saving lives and livelihoods. With this in mind, Kogan Page is delighted to announce the publication of Supply Chain Management for Humanitarians (ISBN: 9780749474683, £39.99). This exciting new book provides a practical guide to humanitarian logistics, supported by real examples, helpful tools, and a problem-based learning approach. This book:

  • Showcases real life cases studies and examples from leading organisations including Oxfam, Unicef, and The Red Cross
  • Shows how to integrate collaboration and coordination into working practices, one of the current biggest challenges in the humanitarian community 
  • Considers humanitarian logistics from both a strategic and operational perspective

“This book offers a distinct perspective on how the problem-solving capacity of supply chain management principles can help humanitarian organisations and aid workers to operate under conditions that are much more complex, unpredictable and resource-demanding than we find in conventional 'commercial' supply chains. Cutting across topics such as supply chain strategy, procurement, warehousing, transportation, risk and sustainability, the book paves the way for personal development of aid workers and their humanitarian organisations”. Arni Halldorsson, Professor, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden
