Stabilisation Phase

The stabilisation phase describes the second period following an event. Estimation of the duration of the stabilisation emergency phase varies: while Davis & Lambert (2002) define it to typically start two to four weeks after the event and last for two to six months, Harvey (2007) estimates that the stabilisation and recovery phase together last for several months or years after the event, depending on the type and severity of the emergency. The exact duration depends on the event and the context of the emergency. Duration is not time-bound but rather depends on the achievement of set targets (indicators).
