Making Essential Items Field Ready
by Field Ready

Affected populations and the aid workers that serve them do not have exactly what they need, where and when they need it. Relief supplies and other essential items are too often unavailable or trapped in slow and expensive supply chains. As a result, lives are lost and suffering goes unaddressed.

Field Ready meets humanitarian and reconstruction aid needs, by localizing the manufacturing of essential relief and reconstruction items. This networked and distributed way of working cuts across sectors and increases local resiliency. Field Ready is transforming logistics through technology and design, using useful items to solve local problems. The impact of this is dramatically improved efficiency making aid faster, cheaper and better.
