Strengthened humanitarian supply chain systems for refugee population in Turkey

The British Council - Newton Fund supported project (£38,000) developed an innovative humanitarian supply chain and logistics system to ensure resilient and efficient food distribution for Syrian refugees. Brunel researchers led the project in collaboration with Ankara Yıldırım Beyazıt University, Turkey. The project adopted “lean” principles in the food supply chain and identified approaches for bottle necks to improve operational resilience, enhance logistical support and to improve effective delivery of food supplies during a humanitarian crisis across refugee camps.
