Hellingrath Bernd, Link Daniel, Widera Adam


Abstract
Disaster relief is not only a challenge for humanitarian organisations, but a global one for politics, economies, and societies worldwide. With this book, almost 50 experts from industry, humanitarian organisations and research institutions contribute their knowledge in this highly relevantfield. The book includes the latest results from BVL International's Humanitarian Logistics Council (part 1),a working group that discussed the most important topics of humanitarian supply chains and logistics, chapters on humanitarian and commercial communities of practice (part 2), training and education (part 3) and research in humanitarian logistics (part 4). The results can be found in this book, divided in four chapters:

  • Results of BVL International's Humanitarian Logistics Council
  • Humanitarian and Commercial Communities of Practice
  • Training and Education
  • Research

The book lends assistance and provides suggestions how all phases of humanitarian operations can be considered adequately, from the first response and recovery to rehabiltation and mitigaton as well as prevention and preparation, in order to build resilient communities in an interconnected and globalized world.
