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 decision-makers in government departments, humanitarian agencies, and non-government organizations (NGOs) to enhance the effectiveness and quality of humanitarian aid while mainstreaming economic recovery into crisis responses.
Core Standards: market based programming, long term recovery, assessment and analysis standards
Four Program Areas: Financial services, Access to Assets, Employment creation, Enterprise Development.
