 About the Minimum Economic Recovery Standards (MERS)

Over the course of three years, the Minimum Economic Recovery Standards were sponsored by SEEP and developed by joint efforts of more than 60 discrete agencies, with several hundred individuals contributing or providing feedback to the Standards. The MERS initiative represents an industry consensus on minimum standards for economic strengthening programs in crisis environments, which are detailed in the Minimum Economic Recovery Standards, Second Edition. In late 2011, the MERS was accepted as an official companion to the Sphere Project’s Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response.

The MERS articulates the minimum level of technical and other assistance to be provided in promoting the recovery of economies and livelihoods affected by crisis. The MERS has six technical areas: Core Standards for Economic Recovery, Assessment and Analysis Standards, Financial Services, Productive Assets, Employment Creation, and Enterprise Development. These standards offer tools for government departments, humanitarian agencies, inter-governmental organizations, and local populations to enhance the effectiveness and quality of the economic assistance offered, and thus makes a significant difference in the lives of the people affected by crisis. In putting forth these standards, SEEP aims to improve the capabilities and accountability of humanitarian and economic practitioners.
