Emergencies generated by humanitarian disasters are unique; lives are at stake and in contrast to the business sector the issue is not to bring quality service to consumers at the lowest cost. Unlike in business, where traditionally demand can usually be predetermined, the humanitarian supply chain is faced with a series of unknowns. In business profit maximisation and cost minimisation are ordinarily key drivers/motivators as is the desire to sustain long-term market demand and the limitation of uncertainty within the supply chain; however, the provision of humanitarian aid has a differing set of characteristics which inevitably complicate the associated management task. This text is designed for those who have managerial responsibility for elements of the humanitarian supply chain and serves as an introduction to the challenges and coping mechanisms that may be applied to achieve effective aid distribution.
