The Logistics Capacity Assessment (LCA) tool contains baseline information about the logistics capacity of countries relevant for humanitarian emergency preparedness and response. The tool is hosted by WFP for the global humanitarian community.

LCAs cover logistics infrastructure, processes and regulations, markets, and contacts in a given country. There are currently LCAs for over 100 countries. Assessments are conducted in a given country every two years, mainly by WFP logistics staff and also by staff from other humanitarian organisations or private sector partners. This information is then published on this platform by Global Logistics Cluster.

The LCA tool is the only place where all this humanitarian logistics-related information is consolidated in one location. The tool aims to ensure that the information required for a humanitarian logistics operation is organised and presented in a standard way across multiple countries, in the hope of providing a tool that will enhance humanitarian logistics preparedness, response and coordination.

 For information, please contact LCA.GLOBAL@wfp.org
