    Applying the Minimum Economic Recovery Standards Workshop Series: Amman

    The Minimum Economic Recovery Standards (MERS) articulate the minimum level of assistance required to support the economic recovery of vulnerable populations in the wake of crises. The MERS handbook offers tools and approaches that support practitioners, multi-lateral stakeholders, local market actors, governments and donors to support economic recovery through market-based response. The standards draw from the accumulated experience of the world’s leading humanitarian agencies and economic development practitioners. The third and most current edition of the MERS represents the expertise of over 90 organizations and 175 technical professionals.

    The MERS are an invaluable tool for designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating any type of program or activity that supports the economic recovery of individuals, businesses, and communities. As a member standard of the Humanitarian Standards Partnership, MERS are designed to promote humanitarian quality and accountability for and with people in crises.

    Business Fights Poverty Oxford 2019

    There is a clear and deepening frustration amongst some with the rhetoric of “purpose”, “sustainability” and the notion of “business as a force for good”. For those of us who believe in the power of business to do good, this is an opportunity for some honest self-reflection.

    The common ground between those within the business and purpose world, and those who criticise it, is the desire for authenticity; the recognition that we need to move beyond the rhetoric of purpose and embed it meaningfully and consistently across business.

    We need an honest discussion about how this can be done, recognising where progress is being made and where actions are falling short. ​​​​​​​

    Join an invited audience of 300 professionals and practitioners working to embed purpose authentically within business.  Engage with peers from leading global companies, civil society and government who are pioneering new ways to harness companies’ products, services, value chains, and voice to have a positive social impact.

    This one-day experience will combine inspiring plenaries with practical deep-dive knowledge zones focused on: partnerships, women’s economic empowerment, corporate social innovation, responsible supply chains, and purpose.
