Partners need support from the Cluster to facilitate the coordination and management of logistical information on issues of access to the field, processes and guidelines for transport, data on suppliers of goods and services, and their capacities.
The Cluster is analysing the operational context and difficulties of partners in implementing humanitarian activities in order to find common solutions and speed up the response. Bilateral meetings have been organized with humanitarian and private sector actors to collect information on logistical processes, including issues of imports, customs, storage and transport.
Humanitarian organizations use several logistics operators’ services, most of which are present in the main cities of the country and have good delivery capabilities, both to nationalize imported goods and to store and distribute cargo on the ground.
The greatest challenge is the access and shortage of fuel for implementation and monitoring missions in the field, which reduces the response capacity of humanitarian actors, especially in the most remote areas, where there are high levels of need.
