UN Office of Nairobi Conference Hall
Nairobi, Kenya


The 5th Africa Logistics Conference was successfully convened at the United Nations Office at Nairobi on the 27th – 28th October 2016.

Organized by the HELP Logistics East Africa team; and co-facilitated by WFP, the University of Nairobi, the International Association of Public Health Logisticians (represented by Pamela Steele Associates) and the Inter Agency Working Group, the conference brought together a wide and diverse group of humanitarian supply chain practitioners.

Attended by over 150 supply chain delegates; there were representatives from more than 70 Donors, UN agencies, Government bodies, Red Cross and Crescent agencies, commercial companies and Universities in attendance.

This representative group came together to provide East African responses to key issues that were raised by the Global Logistics Cluster in its paper ‘Delivering in a Moving World’ at the World Humanitarian Summit, 2016. The 5th Africa Logistics Conference enabled supply chain practitioners from the region to present their perspectives on important themes like localisation, nationalization and adapting to change in the humanitarian world.

A report capturing the main responses, reactions and discussions from the delegates at the Conference will be published in November.

The HELP East Africa team warmly thanks the presenters, co-facilitators and the delegates for such a collaborative and interesting event.

A 40 min summary of the conference as well as a 5 minutes highlight video will also be uploaded in the coming days under the "Content" menu.
