  • Humanitarian logistics metrics
  • Disaster agencies and military assistance
  • Humanitarian logistics: cultural perspectives

The book examines the key challenges faced by those responsible for organising and distributing resources in often dangerous and unstable environments.  With a particular focus on pre-disaster preparations and suggestions for best practice, this book is essential reading for all those engaged in humanitarian relief programmes.
