Hi, I have 2 of my classmate posts. I need you to respond to each one separately. , one source at least for each one of them.
This is a long document that you can review later, but focus on pages 11-17 addressing Humanitarian Relief and Broken Supply Chains. There are 7 key topics in this section.
Pick one area and briefly explain its impact- positive or negative- as it relates to relief and supply chains. If you can find a disaster to support your position, that would be great.

Natural disasters and human-made calamities lead to the destruction of property and
In the case of Hurricane Katrina that occurred in the United States of America, the response to the event was not effective. The main reason for the delays and the ineffective response was due to lack of adequate resources by the supply chain and the rescue team to conduct the operations (Cresswell, 2016). Questions have continued to be raised regarding the rescue operations that took place after the occurrence of Hurricane Katrina. The government should ensure that there is adequate funding to the relief organizations so as to avoid delays due to lack of adequate financial resources. Earlier preparations should be done and effective planning should take place to determine the type and amount of resources that will be needed in case of a disaster. According to Cresswell (2016), it will help in promoting swift operations

Advancing Humanitarian Logistics
Natural and man-made disaster swept through various parts of the world and received much attention over the past decade. Meanwhile, many parts of the world suffer from the lack of basic necessities, including shelter, water, food, education, access to basic health care and safety, which have been identified among “humanity’s top 10 problems over the next 50 years”. Effective logistics operations are a critical component of addressing these needs.
With the objective of articulating challenges in the humanitarian logistics sector and identifying important research issues and opportunities, practitioners and researchers from around the world convened for the 2009 Humanitarian Logistics Conference
The challenges in humanitarian logistics are great and include, among others, limited availability of resources and infrastructure to address needs, high uncertainty and urgency characterizing response efforts, and the presence of multiple stakeholders who often act with different objectives . Drawing on the outcome of the focused workshops, panel discussions and presentations, event organizers have identified the following 10 ideas that are consistently part of a strategic model for successful humanitarian relief operations.
1. Demand analysis.
2. Inventory planning and control.
3. Regional coordination and synergies.
4. In-kind donations management.
5. Collaboration among organizations.
6. Understanding regional political, economic and socioeconomic conditions.
7. Utilizing local capacity and capabilities.
8. Constant communication.
9. Socioeconomic impact assessment.
10. Humanitarian operations evaluation.
