Humanitarian Supply Chain Management: Extended Literature Review

Part of the Lecture Notes in Management and Industrial Engineering book series (LNMIE)

Abstract

Humanitarian supply chain management (HSCM) has gained popularity in recent years in research fields. The aim of this paper is to review the literature on humanitarian operations and crisis/disaster management from 2010 to the latest researches, in order to identify the current research and to provide direction for future research in this growing field. Studies are classified considering the research publication year and research fields. Articles from humanitarian supply chain management were reviewed, and keywords were identified within a disaster management lifecycle framework. Research gaps are identified for future research areas.

Keywords

  • Humanitarian supply chain management
  • Relief operations
  • Disaster
