The number and scale of natural and man-made disasters is increasing at an unprecedented rate, leading to devastating consequences for citizens, governments, and entire economies. In response, humanitarian supply chains (HSC) are used as a means of reducing suffering and saving lives. HSCs manage and deliver aid to those in need after a disasterstrikes and exist only for the period of the relief operation. With reduced budgetsthere is an impetusto investigate technological innovationsthat offer increased efficiencies and reduced costs. One such innovation is information and communications technology (ICT), which is currently under-utilized by HSCs. This paper investigates the benefits, barriers, and enablers of increased ICT adoption in HSCs and offers solutions most suited to their needs. The study develops a matrix that identifiesthe enablers and barriers of implementing innovative ICT and highlights associated managerial implications and suggested areas for future research.
