2009.05 A ripple in development? Long term perspectives on the response to the Indian Ocean tsunami 2004

The evaluation is a follow-up evaluation of linkages between immediate relief, rehabilitation and development (LRRD) related to the response to the Indian Ocean Tsunami in 2004. The first LRRD evaluation was one of five studies carried out by the Tsunami Evaluation Coalition (TEC) which was formed by various donors and organizations. This study pointed to a need to follow up on the LRRD study at a later stage. The new LRRD-evaluation was therefore commissioned in order to do this. The evaluation focuses on Indonesia, Sri Lanka and the Maldives, as recipients of the largest share of the post-tsunami response. The main objective of the evaluation is to gather the experiences and lessons learned from the support.

The evaluation covers the period from 2005 to 2008 focusing on five thematic areas –state and civil society; poverty, livelihoods and economic recovery; social fabric and community development; risk reduction and finally capacity development. The evaluation includes document review, surveys and field studies in the three countries. It was carried out by Channel Research in cooperation with three partners – the consultancies Dara, AIDMI and TeamC Voter. The Evaluation was financed by more than ten donors, national authorities and several international NGO’s with Sida as the lead donor in the evaluation management group that also included Danidas Evaluation Department.

The joint follow-ud evaluation, the summary report and the document review can be downloaded from Sida's website.
