This research investigates civil-military coordination (CIMIC) in humanitarian logistics through a study of two natural disasters: the Pakistan Earthquake of 2005 and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in 2013. There is increasing and common military involvement in the humanitarian response to disasters, yet CIMIC remains under researched despite reports of challenges. Analysis of 115 reports over two disasters shows four factors have emerged for consideration including coordination and collaboration among civilian and military actors, the focus considering military capacities, different applications of terminology and the diverse approaches in reporting military assistance provided.
