Logistics Capacity Assessments (LCAs)
The Logistics Capacity Assessment (LCA)is a long-standing tool of WFP Logistics. Since 2008, it has provided important logistics information relevant to Logistics Cluster partners and the Humanitarian Community and is shared as an interagency tool via the Logistics Cluster website. In 2013, the Logistics Cluster took the initiative to improve the user-friendliness of the LCA by moving it to a new, wiki based format which offers significant benefits. These include incorporating real time updates and easy exports of individual sections in multiple formats. For additional information, please contact the designated LCA helpdesk at LCA.GLOBAL@wfp.org.
Thanks to all those who have provided support and we look forward to continuing to improve the system and provide a valuable resource for users globally.
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.
