YOU SHOULD REGISTER FOR THE MINIMUM ECONOMIC RECOVERY STANDARDS TRAINING SESSIONS!
Increasingly practitioners and donors working in humanitarian response recognize the need for rapid tailored support for the livelihoods and local economies affected in the wake of a crisis. The Minimum Economic Recovery Standards (MERS) sponsored by SEEP were developed collaboratively by 63 agencies over a period of three years. Today they represent an industry consensus and are a companion to the Sphere handbook. The goal of MERS is to assist disaster affected populations to regain their livelihoods and provide for themselves and their families with dignity while reducing dependency on aid.
These standards offer tools for government departments, humanitarian agencies, non-government organizations (NGOs), and local practitioners to enhance the effectiveness and quality of humanitarian aid.
Core Standards: market based programming, donor harmonization, long term recovery, sustainability.
Four Program Areas: Assessment and Analysis Standards, Financial services, Access to Assets, Employment creation, Enterprise Development.
(REQUIRES THE FIRST 2-DAY GENERAL PRACTITIONER TRAINING)
COST: $500 USD
This follow-on training course will equip professionals with the confidence and competence in training skills to deliver the MERS training, and the participants will go through an accreditation process to become a certified trainer of MERS.
