We use and promote advanced quantification methods to improve forecasts and provide suppliers and managers with more accurate information to plan their procurements and deliveries, all of which helps countries avoid stockouts and product waste through expiration. Consolidating supply plans from multiple countries also allows for bulk purchasing and drives down commodity costs. Our experts monitor global consumption patterns and supply to take corrective steps in forecasting and communicating demand risks. Additionally, we work with government agencies, public and private sector organizations, and other donors to improve demand forecasts using a variety of tools and data sources. This coordination helps ensure shipments are planned, scheduled, and monitored for continuity of product availability.
