Logistics Training

Dear partners,

The Logistics Working Group invites you to a 5-7 day training workshop on warehouse management, basic humanitarian logistics supply chain procedures, and food security to be held in Ela Beach Hotel and Murray Barracks, Port Moresby from 24 to 31 July.

The training is being organized with the overarching goal of strengthening logistics capacity, especially for national staff tackling development issues in PNG. Given the various access constraints that PNG faces, the main role of the training workshop is to equip humanitarian workers in the country, with knowledge and skills in the logistics sector. A unique aspect of the workshops is the practical session where participants will spend a couple of days at a site erecting and dismantling mobile storage units.

The training workshop will cover the components in the table below. Please note that the agenda as yet to be confirmed and may still change.
