In this episode we speak to Prof. Gyöngyi Kovács, a Professor in Humanitarian Logistics, about managing humanitarian logistics in conflicts and crisis. We discuss how those parts of the world that are most affected by human insecurities are often those that are the hardest to reach, or to operate in as a humanitarian organisation, or to access infrastructure to communicate and coordinate relief efforts and programmes. Consequently, humanitarian logistics is crucial to ensuring human security. We also touch on programmes such as cash-based assistance and discuss the pandemic as a human-security concern that is close to home. Mentioned in the podcast are the following links:
