Nepal Response : Logistics Cluster ( 2 September 2015 )
Abstract:
Highlights: 1. The Logistics Cluster was formally activated in Nepal on 27 April 2015. 2. Logistics Cluster Cells have been established in Kathmandu, Deurali, Chautara and Dhading Besi. Meetings are held on a regular basis in all locations in order to maximise the use of available resources, avoid duplication of efforts and allow an uninterrupted flow of relief material. 3. To date, 218 Information Management (IM) products have been published, and 22,989 unique users have visited the site, producing 22,644 page views. 787 users are currently subscribed to the dedicated Nepal mailing list. 4. The Logistics Cluster has a dedicated GIS officer able to take requests from the humanitarian community for logistics mapping. Relevant maps are available for download on the Logistics Cluster website, including a road access map, a map of helicopter landing zones to assist air operations, and district trekking trail maps to facilitate porter operations and repairs. 5. From the start of the operation, the Logistics Cluster established regular coordination with the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) to avoid logistics bottlenecks, and a representative has been made available in Kathmandu, to advise the humanitarian community on customs procedures. 6. As of 2 September, over 300 participants from around 130 organisations have attended coordination meetings in Kathmandu, Deurali, Chautara and Dhading Besi. 7. The Access Infrastructure Working Group has been established and endorsed by the Government of Nepal, as well as by the Inter-Cluster Coordination (ICC), the Humanitarian Country Team and the Logistics Cluster. The working group aims at gathering available information on rehabilitation projects for road, trails, bridges and suspension bridges both in the short and longer term time frames and act as a focal point for organization operating in this sector. If funds allow, repair work will be carried out on damaged roads and bridges in urgent need of rehabilitation and to re-establish access to communities in need.
