Disaster disrupts the normal functioning of a society or community that causes
widespread material, environmental, human, and economic losses that exceed the
potential scope available for the affected community to cope with while using their
available resources. Disaster management, on the other hand, refers to the process of
using operational skills, organizational skills, administrative directives, and operational
capacities in implementing strategies, improving capabilities, and developing policies
aimed at lessening the adversely negative impacts brought about by these hazards or even the likelihood of a disaster.
A whole cycle of disaster management consists of mitigation, readiness, response, and
rehabilitation. Disaster response management is a very difficult problem to handle. The
study’s goal is to investigate the factors impeding humanitarian logistics integration in
Mogadishu, Somalia Despite all of the policies and efforts put in place by humanitarian
actors in Somalia, humanitarian logistics integration appears to be lagging in terms of
timely response to humanitarian crises.
The descriptive survey was used as the appropriate method for the research because it
was the most cost-effective in terms of data collection within the constraints of the
available time. Questionnaires were used in the study. The study relied on
primary/secondary data. The information gathered was analyzed qualitatively. The data
analysis was presented in the form of tables and figures, which were accompanied by
appropriate descriptions or explanations.
The research findings and recommendations will most likely benefit humanitarian
organizations, donors, governments, and policymakers. Following up on this study are the following: To investigate the challenges of integrating humanitarian logistics for
humanitarian organizations in Mogadishu. To determine the extent of humanitarian
logistics integration for humanitarian organizations in Mogadishu, Somalia, and to
establish the relationship between humanitarian logistics integration and disaster response
