About MERS

The Minimum Economic Recovery Standards (MERS) articulate the minimum level of technical and other assistance to be provided in promoting the recovery of economies and livelihoods affected by crisis. The MERS cover six technical areas:

  1. Core Standards for Economic Recovery
  2. Assessment and Analysis Standards
  3. Financial Services
  4. Productive Assets
  5. Employment Creation
  6. Enterprise Development

These standards offer tools for government departments, humanitarian agencies, inter-governmental organizations, and local populations to enhance the effectiveness and quality of economic assistance offerings. The goal of the standards is to improve the impact of economic recovery programming by building consensus on good practices.  With the MERS, practitioners can:

  • Promote program quality and accountability 
  • Ensure consistency across programs 
  • Educate staff, partners, and grantees 
  • Negotiate with funders 
  • Learn basic requirements for operating with other sectors

Ultimately, the MERS make a significant difference in the lives of the people affected by crisis and build the capacity of economic recovery practitioners. Learn how to apply them to your work in our upcoming MERS training course in Washington DC!
