Hence, it is not surprising that sustainability is an often overlooked concept in humanitarian logistics literature. g. Baumgartner et al. 2008; Golini et al. 2014; Hirsch et al. 2006; Mont et al. 2014; Sharma and Ruud 2003). Sustainability is also an ideology in economic, technological, political and academic circles—in spite of the fact that academic research has only just begun to understand the concept theoretically, empirically and strategically (Bansal and Roth 2000; Kilbourne et al. 2002; Sharma et al.

1 Transdisciplinarity In explaining the main features of sustainomics as a framework, Manusinghe distinguishes in (Manusinghe 2009) between multidisciplinarity, interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity in order to highlight the faculty of his approach to integrate knowledge from the sustainability and the development domains. Multidisciplinary teams includes efforts of researchers and practitioners from different disciplines, which is required to cope with the multitude and complexity of issues in making HL-systems more sustainable, while interdisciplinarity goes a step further with attempts to bridge the gaps between the various disciplines.

People who have enough sense not to live in a flood zone should not be forced to pay the insurance premiums of those who do live in such places. It is inherently unfair to force the general public to subsidize this kind of risk-taking behavior (McGee 2008). Other challenges emanating from the current approach to HL include the sheer diversity of actors in a humanitarian response (convergence of people, responders, volunteers and relief material), and the sheer diversity of disaster contexts, beneficiaries, stakeholders and requirements.
