dc.description.abstract<p>The Hybrid Airship transport alternative has the potential to be a game changing technology with significant development in recent years. It offers the technical capabilities to make a broad contribution to the optimization of mobility and logistics networks in isolated communities and territories, especially but not only in Small Island Developing States.&nbsp;</p> <p>This topic is of significant importance in the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In the event of a disaster, different aid agencies are deployed with support in the distribution and logistics of perishable cargo, essential cargo, equipment and assistance personnel. The economic capacity and the transport accessibility -connectivity- of the regions directly influence countries&rsquo; capacity to face a disaster. Disasters usually have local effects and the area affected depends on the type of the natural hazard. Some of them, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, have a global impact, presenting a significant challenge for the transport and logistics industry.</p> <p>The aim of this technical note is to help raise awareness on Airships as an innovative mobile services technology that presents a series of competitive advantages for improving connectivity in SIDS and that can serve as a response for humanitarian, sanitary and environmental challenges across the local, regional and global scales, as a resilient and sustainable logistics solution.&nbsp;</p>
