Who we are

About us

The Emergency Supply Pre-Positioning Strategies (ESUPS) Working Group was created by a group of stakeholders interested in improving pre-positioning of relief items as a preparedness measure.

ESUPS is funded by USAID and governed by a Steering Group which is co-chaired by Welthungerhilfe and UNHRD. The Steering Group further includes Action Against Hunger, The British Red Cross, The International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), The International Organization for Migration (IOM), Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Save the Children, USAID/OFDA, the Logistics Cluster WFP Pacific and the collaboration of Pennsylvania State University. OCHA Geneva acts as ESUPS Secretariat.
