The JRCS seized the opportunity to learn as many lessons as possible from its first large-scale relief and recovery operation carried out on the national stage. The JRCS was also keen to disseminate these lessons so as to contribute to the institutional development of the entire Movement for future disaster response, particularly in high-income countries. To this end, the JRCS, jointly with IFRC, commissioned independent experts to carry out two evaluations; one for relief activities during the first six months of operation; and the other for recovery activities during the first two years of operation.
