As part of the Global Logistics Cluster strategy, a Lessons Learned Exercise was commissioned in December 2015 in Ukraine. The objective of the exercise was to identify best practices and areas for improvement to be replicated across operations globally. Particular focus was given to draw lessons from an operation where WFP, the lead agency of the Logistics Cluster, had limited presence in country at the time of activation of the cluster. At the time of the mission, the Logistics Cluster operation in Ukraine was found to be highly appreciated by most of the stakeholders consulted, and considered relevant, appropriate, effective and efficient in addressing the identified logistics gaps and bottlenecks. Conversely, the limited presence of the lead agency and a high turnover of international staff in the Logistics Cluster were found to have contributed negatively to the response.
