MSc in Humanitarian Logistics and Emergency Management in Exercise Viking 2014
Recently students of the MSc in Humanitarian Logistics and Emergency Management participated on Exercise Viking 2014 in the Curragh from April 2nd to April 5th. VIKING 14 is a Command Post Exercise/Computer Assisted Exercise in the “Spirit of Partnership for Peace” combining 6 different militaries, 13 different nationalities, 4 UN agencies and over 20 non-governmental originations.
The Exercise is built on a fictitious scenario, BOGALAND, involving several countries in deep crisis in the need of Joint Combined Civilian and Military Peace Support. The MSc students performed the role of the UNWFP and were the Logistics Cluster Lead in the exercise. As part of the exercise students experienced joint and interagency coordination challenges, performed assessments of the logistical needs of the humanitarian community as well as being responsible for the movement of food in the exercise.
