Engage with MERS

The SEEP Network has led the development, revision, and publication of the MERS since 2007. As a collaborative learning network, SEEP works collectively with members and industry stakeholders to support the adoption, replication, and expansion of strategies that scale the use of MERS in humanitarian and economic recovery programming. 

With support from the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance, SEEP is building a cohort of MERS focal points that work collectively to promote the application of the MERS around the world. The Focal Point program is designed to support a network of MERS champions who serve as SEEP-endorsed trainers, technical experts and advocacy partners. MERS focal points will be resourced to support processes of individual and organizational change that lead to greater application of MERS.

Customized MERS Learning Events

SEEP provides custom learning events tailored to specific audiences ranging from community-based organizations, INGOs, UN agencies, humanitarian coordinating bodies, and funding partners. Learning events can be conducted in-person or virtually. Events may range from half-day overview sessions to five-day training of trainers. MERS learning events are designed to meet the unique needs, interests and budget of your organization. 

Mainstreaming MERS partnerships provide direct technical support to humanitarian and development organizations to integrate MERS into operational practices and support institutions to design deliver, and implement quality economic programsThrough a mainstreaming partnershipwe build capacity of staff and leadership to use MERS as a method of improving practice and demonstrating accountability to donors, partners and affected populations.
