Authors: Arun Kumar, Yousef Abu Nahleh, Fugen Daver, Reham Al-Hindawi


Despite the availability of natural disaster related time series data for last 110 years, there is no forecasting tool available to humanitarian relief organizations to determine forecasts for emergency logistics planning. This study develops a forecasting tool based on identifying probability of disaster for each country in the world by using decision tree modeling. Further, the determination of aggregate forecasts leads to efficient pre-disaster planning. Based on the research findings, the relief agencies can optimize the various resources allocation in emergency logistics planning.

Keywords: Forecasting, decision tree modeling, humanitarian relief, emergency supply chain
