The independent evaluation was facilitated by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Prime Minister Leona Marlin-Romeo, the Emergency Operation Centre and Disaster Management Team. Carby consulted people from government, the private sector, non-governmental organisations, and the wider community about aspects of immediate preparedness, operations, restoration and humanitarian assistance.
