The Logistics Subgroup was established with the understanding that in every crisis, there arises a need for the procurement and deployment of logistical resources to support the response.

Nairobi represents a key hub for the region for such procurement and deployment, and many regional offices play a role in facilitating and supporting their country counterparts with this capacity.

The overall aim of the Sub-Working Group is therefore to work towards effective and efficient service delivery mechanisms in delivery of humanitarian aid in the region through strategic coordination and information sharing.


Open to regional representatives in charge of Logistics/Supply Chain/Procurement – including; advisors/directors/managers/coordinators from the INGOs, NGOs, the UN, Red Cross and the donor community.

The sub-group holds quarterly meetings.
