(ii) Distil lessons learned for improving coordination practice for future crisis response, and recovery systems and processes i.e. in what way can future coordination arrangements be better organised, and their tools and services rendered more effective? (iii) Serve as a test case for undertaking joint but parallel inter-agency evaluations within a larger umbrella evaluation effort, the Tsunami Evaluation Coalition.
