 MERS Training materials

In addition to the full digital MERS handbook being offered for free in English, Arabic, French and Spanish, we've also developed a suite of translated training tools to better assist facilitators in leading MERS training sessions. Learn more about the training materials below, and click on the button to download the free tools in English, Arabic, French and Spanish.

Fact Sheet


PowerPoint Modules


The fact sheet is a digestable, one-pager aimed at helping the trainer and trainees easily grasp the purpose and usefulness of the MERS.

This will be the trainers main guide as they navigate through the MERS training session. The PowerPoint features 6 modules across more than 60 slides and includes detailed presenter notes for confident facilitation.

Three Case Studies


These three case studies ask that you reflect on present and past responses or projects to see how the MERS could have been implemented for improved outcomes in market-based programming. These exercise and assignment sheets are useful aids during training sessions as they ask trainees to design program activities, approaches and responses to both real-life (Nepal earthquake) and simulated (Vasunda floods) humanitarian disasters.
