WFP lauds establishment of first provincial logistics cluster in Indonesia

News Hour:

The United Nations World Food Programme welcomed the official establishment of the first-ever provincial logistics cluster in Indonesia by the Governor of Yogyakarta.

“The Governor of Yogyakarta and head of the provincial disaster management agency BPBD have shown tremendous foresight by establishing this provincial logistics cluster, which will help ensure that relief items are dispatched as quickly and smoothly as possible during a disaster,” said Anthea Webb, Representative of WFP in Indonesia.

The Provincial Logistics Cluster coordinates the government, private sector, civil society and international agencies involved in emergency logistics. Its establishment enables the members of the cluster to agree upon the roles and responsibilities each will have once disaster strikes, and to practice working together before disaster strikes.

As the lead agency of the Global Logistics Cluster, WFP is working with the Government of Indonesia’s Disaster Management Agency to reinforce the speed and effectiveness of emergency response. This work is funded by the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance.
