EMMA toolkit now available

The Emergency Market Mapping and Analysis toolkit (EMMA) is now available. The toolkit is a guidance manual to assist front-line staff to do rapid assessments of market systems in the first few weeks of a crisis. Its purpose is to improve early response planning so that resources are used effectively, and so that opportunities are not missed to bolster future recovery in the local economy.

EMMA is designed for generalists, as well as specialist staff working in the food security, shelter, water and sanitation sectors. Ten practical steps help to understand the important market aspects of an emergency situation, and communicate this knowledge promptly and effectively to decision-makers. EMMA assumes limited previous experience of economic or market analysis.
