Abstract

To date, the majority of Humanitarian Logistic researchers have used a relatively parsimonious 2*2 matrix to classify a disaster event and its logistic impact. The aim of this conceptual paper is to develop a more detailed framework that contains 13 major elements which are designed capture a range of antecedents and emergent properties and, thereby, offer an improved understanding of the logistic impact of a potential or actual disaster event. The results will underpin future research that is aimed at improving our understanding of the Humanitarian Logistic cost drivers.
