Global Mapping of Emergency Stockpiles

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and the Logistics Cluster, led by the World Food Programme (WFP), launched an interactive web-based tool called “Global Mapping of Emergency Stockpiles.”

The tool displays information on emergency relief warehouses managed by international humanitarian organizations. The aim of the tool is to assist affected countries and humanitarian relief agencies to identify and send relief items to respond to crises. It is the only existing central platform emphasizing “who has what where” by region, sector, organization, and/or organization type.
