An evaluation of the Shelter Cluster activated in responce to Cyclone Giri which struck Myanmar in October 2010. The purpose of this evaluation was to: 1. Appraise the service provided by the IFRC as coordinator of the shelter and NFI sector to shelter sector participants – Government, UN agencies, Red Cross Red Crescent Movement, NGOs both national and international, and other actors; 2. Review and analyze the experience of the IFRC with respect to the establishment and operation of the shelter and NFI sector, with a particular emphasis on lessons to be learnt for future operations; 3. Provide recommendations with regard to the IFRC’s leadership of future emergency shelter coordination activities at both national and global levels; 4. Examine if there were aspects of the IFRC's shelter sector leadership which potentially might have or actually did compromise the mandate and principles of the Red Cross/Red Crescent. 5. Examine the options for the IFRC to continue to have a lead role in the shelter sector during non-emergency periods and the resources required to perform such a role; 6. Examine the linkages between the shelter and the NFI sector and any coordination system set up by the national authorities; 7. Examine the extent to which national actors (NGOs, affected population, civil society and the private sector) were included in the coordination mechanism; 8. Analyze whether actions have been taken to address recommendations (global and not specific to operational context) made in previous cluster reviews.
