The Supply Chain Impact of Europe’s Refugee Crisis
OCTOBER 16, 2015
In Lebanon alone, more than a million Syrians have taken refuge, increasing the country’s population by a third. On September 5, 163 metric tons of relief supplies arrived via air shipments, including 86 tons of high-energy biscuits, 30,000 blankets, 25,000 sleeping mats, and 1,000 solar lanterns. For example, in 2013, the organization provided Syrian refugees with in-kind transportation of 394 metric tons of food and supplies.
