Humanitarian Supply Chain Configurations and Strategies for Managing Unsolicited Donations

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The convergence of unsolicited non-priority in-kind donations has been coined as the second disaster wave. It hampers the delivery of critical supplies to disaster-affected locations and obstructs efforts in meeting demand with supply in humanitarian emergencies.
Based on eliciting the opinions of two expert panels, the present research puts forward potential combinations of supply chain configuration-strategy that allow better management of unsolicited donations. The paper identifies supply chain capabilities and related practices needed in each combination. As such, supply chain researchers and practitioners can prioritise the most relevant supply chain capabilities, considering the constraints of the prevalent conditions.
