This research is aimed to introduce the concept of net-chain from a humanitarian context. A net-chain is group of networks containing horizontal relationships between organizations within a particular sector, which are sequentially arranged based on vertical relationships between firms from different sector. Net-chain analysis conceptualizes supply chain and network perspectives when group of organizations coordinate their efforts. The propositions in this study are based on the strength of relationship between organizations in the humanitarian aid network involving actors such as government, corporate donors, suppliers, NGOs, and UN agency, which correspond to their particular types of interdependencies: pooled, sequential, and reciprocal. Accordingly, an appropriate coordination mechanism is offered.
