The MERS Dashboard Tool 2.0

The MERS standards provide a benchmark of minimum program quality in using market systems approaches in humanitarian response, recovery and resilience building. There a total of 29 standards across six grouping:

  • Core Standards (which mirror the Core Humanitarian Standards but with an additional markets lens)
  • Analysis & Assessment Standards
  • Enterprise & Market System Development Standards
  • Asset Distribution Standards
  • Financial Services Standards
  • Employment Standards

The MERS dashboard lives in an excel workbook to make it as accessible to as many organisations and field practitioners as possible. Data from the excel workbook can also be easily uploaded to Power BI too.
