Buttressing Supply Chains against Floods in Asia for Humanitarian Relief and Economic Recovery


ManMohan Sodhi

 et al.

Flood is the most frequently occuring natural disaster worldwide, with Asia suffering the highest incidence. While humanitarian efforts and initiatives to alleviate suffering caused by floods are ongoing, we believe there is a new opportunity to coordinate "last mile" humanitarian efforts in the event of a flood, using micro-retailers. Micro-retailers are the 'last mile' nodes in traditional retail supply chains in many Asian countries, and we propose the use of social enterprise to buttress these supply chains for distribution of essential goods by coordinating with micro-retailers before and after floods. In support of this we also present a stylised model to quantify the benefits of our proposal.
