The concept of a chronological continuum that hitherto defined the sequence of the different types of international engagement (including relief, recovery, security, reconstruction, and development) in environments affected by crises has not been an effective tool in linking relief to development - because it assumed that crises are discrete events, or breaks in the normal develop ment process - thus leaving the problems of the humanitarian - development gap unaddressed.Attempts to fill this gap have re - emerged with the concept of early recovery.
