The Logistics Cluster is part of the cluster system established by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC). Due to its expertise in humanitarian logistics, the IASC designated the World Food Programme (WFP) as the Logistics Cluster’s global lead agency.

It is a community of partners, whose purpose is to support global, regional and local actors in overcoming logistics constraints to the delivery of global humanitarian assistance.

Before crises, we strengthen humanitarian response capacity, especially in high-risk countries and regions.
In crises, where local capacities have been exceeded, we provide leadership, coordination, information management and access to common logistics services.

After crises, we evaluate the response, identify areas for improvement, share good practices and solutions, and invest in learning and preparedness for future emergencies.

There is no formal membership to participate in global or local Logistics Cluster activities – all organizations responding to humanitarian crises can contribute. For more detailed information, see
