About the Minimum Economic Recovery Standards (MERS)

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.

Overview of MERS

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.
