In recent years, natural and man-made disasters have been affecting increasing numbers of people throughout the world. Organisations for emergency and humanitarian aid have experienced an important growth, and efficiency in management becomes crucial. There is a lack of specific tools devoted to logistics of this special kind of interventions in developing countries, demanded by the organisations. A goal programming model that sustains a decision support system currently in development is presented, focusing on the transport problem to distribute humanitarian aid to the affected population of a disaster in a developing country.
