DP World stated the cost of climate-related humanitarian response is projected to reach US$20 billion by 2030. According to a release, as the world faces increasing and unprecedented challenges, humanitarian logistics is central element of crisis response when conventional supply chains are disrupted by natural disasters or emergencies. Leveraging the power of partnerships and collective action, a global network must activate to ensure the efficient delivery of vital aid to crisis-affected communities. About 62 per cent emergencies from 1979 were due to natural disasters; humanitarian logistics is key to crisis response, orchestrating supply chain operations in dire and time-sensitive situations. With lives at stake, the flow of essential goods becomes paramount. This encompasses planning, procurement, transportation, warehousing, and distribution of resources to alleviate human suffering during disasters, conflicts, and emergencies.
