Consult STOCKHOLM guides

STOCKHOLM is a visual pre-positioned stock mapping and analysis tool.

STOCKHOLM stands for STOCK of Humanitarian Organisations Logistics Mapping. The name refers to the Swedish capital, composed of 14 separate islands (representing humanitarian actors working in silo when it comes to pre-positioning), which are linked through over 50 bridges (reinforcing the overall ideas of exchange, connection and collaboration that drive the ESUPS project).

The STOCKHOLM platform offers stock holders access to a visual representation of pre-positioned core relief items. Users are able to filter stock data based on country, province, or any other cross-geographical area; stock data will also be filtered by organisation holding the stock, cluster, and item. In parallel, ESUPS and its academic partners are carrying out studies to demonstrate the value of collaborative pre-positioning practices.

STOCKHOLM is one of the core elements of ESUPS work. The platform was presented during a dedicated session at the Humanitarian Networks and Partnerships Week (HNPW) 2022. A recording of the session is available here.
