While the Logistics Cluster has been able to increasingly support cargo movements to Shire and Mekelle, there is an urgent need for additional food operators to complement ongoing efforts to deliver aid to areas that have not been reached for over three months.
The Logistics Cluster is ramping-up its support and has now established five storage capacities and common transport from Addis Ababa, Adama, Kombulcha, Semera and Gondar. Further, one facility has been identified in Mekelle with 2000 square meters. WFP is working to identify common storage for partners in Shire.
Access constraints and lack of funding are the main challenges for the response.
