2021 HUMLOG Student Handbook


  • Mechanics of Humanitarian Supply Chain Agility and Resilience and Its Empirical Validation 
    • Supply chain agility assisting with humanitarian resilience
    • The humanitarian supply chain is a complex network of NGOs, government, military, police, action aids, logistics service providers with zero tolerance attitude to provide relief to the victims of a catastrophic event or disaster in forms of providing eating materials, medicines, medical support and to ensure quick recovery or increase supply chain resilience
  • Building an Effective Disaster Management Plan
    • Quick read on business resilience with a ten-step process
    • Operational risk management
    • “Form of weather-related events, pandemics, fire, flood, labor actions, port closures and motor vehicle accidents, to name a few.”
  • Mitigation Processes
    • Supply chain resilience in correlation to practitioner based disaster management processes
    • Provides a generic integrated framework for supply chain resilience with demonstrations from Hurricane Katrina
  • FEMA’s Supply Chain Resilience Guide
    • “Quickly reestablishing flows of water, food, pharmaceuticals, medical goods, fuel, and other crucial commodities is almost always in the immediate interest of survivors and longer-term recovery.”
    • Emergency operations plans
    • Community lifelines


  • ARD-C Toolkit
    • The ARC-D toolkit is used to determine the level of a community’s disaster resilience, in two parts:
      • Part A assesses the general context of the community, capturing local population data, governance structures, built environment and ecosystem attributes, vulnerable groups, and major risk scenarios.
      • Part B assesses the community’s disaster resilience level to a chosen risk scenario through a consensus-based focus group discussion, guided by 30 key questions, each linked to a particular resilience component.
  • Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030
    • The Framework was adopted at the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai, Japan, on March 18, 2015 and aims to achieve the substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets of persons, businesses, communities and countries over the next 15 years.
