Linking emergency relief, rehabilitation and development is one of the most complex
challenges confronting the international community in most of its commitment to bring
about sustainable peace as well as equitable and viable development in war torn societies
and countries. Afghanistan is since 2001 one of the striking situation where all
international efforts are put into question. Linking relief, rehabilitation and development
in Afghanistan implies both an appropriate strategy based in a refined analysis of the
situation and a capacity to draw lessons, improve practices and avoid duplicating the
same mistakes made in other similar contexts. A thorough lesson learning effort is also
necessary to ensure that the mistakes made in Afghanistan would not be repeated in the
next contexts where a complex international operation will try to help sustaining a fragile
peace and to get out of a crisis an the heal the scares of a conflict
