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) related to the response to the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004. The first LRRD evaluation was carried as part of the Tsunami Evaluation Coalition (TEC) set of evaluations in 2005-06. The purpose of the document review is twofold: one is 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 in late 2008; the other is to facilitate documentary search for other, future studies of the tsunami related reconstruction interventions and their outcomes and impact. When used on-line the electronic version of the annotated bibliography has active links which connect the reader directly to the full document.
