Humanitarian Forum: Logistics and Supply Chain Management in Emergencies

JPEGNatural disasters, famine, diseases and other ongoing problems across the globe call for a resilient and strengthened supply chain system. In emergencies, programs and service delivery are only possible if the right product gets to the right people at the right place and at the right time.

This year’s humanitarian forum will focus on logistics and supply chain management in emergency situations. The panelists will include experts from Emory University and Georgia Tech, along with Nadine Cornier, technical advisor at the humanitarian office of the United Nations Population Fund.

The forum will take place on Friday, November 8 at 3:30 p.m.

Education Series

JPEGThis fall, representatives from Atlanta NGOs and humanitarian organizations who use the French language in their profession will talk with area high school and university French classes about field work in French-speaking countries. The presentations will give students a broader understanding of humanitarian affairs and showcase how learning a second language opens exciting career paths at home and abroad.

Classroom presentations will take place from October 31 to November 15.
