Minimum Economic Recovery Standards: Key Messages for Nepal
When responding to emergencies like the massive 7.8 earthquake that recently devastated Nepal, first responders have demonstrated a need for guidance and standards related to when and how to begin a market assessment, what type of assessment to carry out, and how to ensure limited resources are invested wisely and do not do harm. This document provides an overview of the Minimum Economic Recovery Standards (MERS) and key messages that are particularly relevant to the 2015 situation in Nepal. The MERS guide practitioners in the field to effectively design assessment-based emergency response programs that support the economic recovery and livelihoods of affected populations in the wake of a crisis.… Read More ›

Cash Transfer Programming Toolkit
The Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) Toolkit is a basic guide to cash transfer programming in emergency response and early recovery settings. It aligns with Mercy Corps’ Vision for Change and Program Management Manual and is based upon best practices and practical experience. The CTP Toolkit, however, cannot address every potential situation or programmatic response. Specically, it does not cover the use of cash as a social safety net, in private sector development, or in financial services payments and subsidies. Rather, this Toolkit provides general guidance for CTP, as well as rationales and best practices relevant to the different types of cash transfers.

We anticipate this Toolkit will be used by field and HQ-based team members who are designing and/or implementing CTP in emergency or early recovery settings. It has been written for those with limited or no CTP experience.

Do Financial Services Build Disaster Resilience? - Examining the Determinents of Recovery from Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines
In November 2013, the Philippines was devastated by Typhoon Yolanda. In response, Mercy Corps initiated programming aimed at speeding affected households’ economic recovery and promoting their resilience to future natural disasters. The interventions were designed with the assumption that access to formal financial products, such as savings accounts, as well as the provision of cash assistance would increase households’ resilience to future shocks. This study analyzed survey data from households in Western Leyte, Philippines to test this and other common assumptions regarding what characteristics contribute to disaster resilience. Specifically, it tests the extent to which formal financial products, diversity of income sources, social capital, and other sources of support are linked to households’ recovery from effects of the typhoon and their perceived ability to cope with similar disasters in the future.… Read More ›

Early Agricultural Market Led Recovery in the Context of the 2015 Nepal Earthquake
Functioning markets for goods, services and commodities are essential for development and growth. Hence, in the wake of a disaster, early market recovery is crucial in ensuring sustainable recovery. In Nepal, agriculture is an important sector, providing employment opportunities to 66 percent of the population and contributing to 35 percent in the GDP. It is therefore critical that agricultural markets be considered and supported in early disaster recovery following the recent earthquakes.… Read More ›
