This annotated bibliography and document review is part of a follow-up evaluation of previous studies on linkages between immediate relief, rehabilitation (or reconstruction), and development (LRRD) that took place around 8 months after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The LRRD 1 evaluation was one of five studies carried out by the Tsunami Evaluation Coalition in 2005 and 2006. Four Coalition studies concentrated largely on process issues – coordination, needs assessment, capacity-building, and funding – while the LRRD study looked at outcome issues as well: what were the consequences of successful and unsuccessful linkages between the different stages of recovery? The purpose of the document review was (1) to summarise current knowledge about the issue of LRRD in the tsunami context and by this prepare for subsequent field based research for the LRRD 2 evaluation, which took place in October-December 2008, and (2) to facilitate documentary searches for future studies of tsunami-related reconstruction interventions and their outcomes and impact. The electronic version of the annotated bibliography has active links to the full documents. The present report is a subsidiary volume to the main LRRD 2 evaluation report.
