As such, WFP has the responsibility of ensuring that the logistics support to a humanitarian response is implemented in a coordinated, predictable and efficient manner. In order to improve the level of operational readiness, WFP is undertaking a logistics preparedness program in Indonesia to address specific scenarios. The current scenario that is being addressed is a large earthquake occurring in the region of Yogyakarta. In addressing this scenario, the most likely logistics network that has been identified would be to utilize Surabaya or Semarang as the strategic entry point by Air and Sea, and to establish forward operations bases in Solo or other relevant locations.
