Title: The Challenges and Benefits of the Humanitarian Supply Chain vis-a-vis the Private Sector Supply Chain

Abstract: This is an introductory presentation from the eyes of a practitioner who has been privileged to sit on both sides of the fence. It looks at some of the challenges faced and benefits found in supply chains for both humanitarian organizations and private sector organizations. It also highlights some of the differences in the drivers of both demand and supply in both types of organizations. The presentation will cover the challenges presented by the environment (political, social, economical, and technological) in which humanitarian supply chains function, including an overview of challenges presented by collaboration with partners and the issue of ethics during disaster relief.
