Logistics Systems in Post-Conflict Zones

PI: Adam Rose, University of Southern California

Year selected for award: 2020

Economic Viability, Resilience, and Sustainability of Logistics Systems in Post-Conflict Zones

Principal Investigator: Adam Rose, University of Southern California

Co-Investigators: Terry Friesz, The Pennsylvania State University; Kieran Donaghy, Cornell University; Michael Ferris, University of Wisconsin; Terry Clower, George Mason University

Years of Award: 2021- 2023

Managing Service Agency: Office of Naval Research

Project Description:
The proposed research project will provide DoD with a realistic characterization of how the logistics systems of a post-conflict society can be redeveloped and expanded to promote economic viability, resilience, and sustainability. Moreover, we expect that the modeling framework will enable DoD, as well as related U.S. Government agencies involved in stability operations and economic development more broadly, to explore alternative approaches to redevelopment of post-conflict economies in a broad range of circumstances around the globe.
