The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the critical need for efficient and effective supply chain systems during emergencies. This program will enhance the capacity of the WFP-managed United Nations Humanitarian Response Depot in Accra, Ghana, to more efficiently receive, store, and transport temperature-sensitive health commodities to 17 countries in West Africa. The project will also create a regional Logistics Knowledge Centre where supply chain professionals and national government staff can receive training on best-in-class supply chain practices, ensuring that they are better equipped to manage supplies during health emergencies.
