Markets are a crucial component of how people survive. Understanding how markets are functioning and disrupted in emergencies is critical to any analysis of hunger, and to food and livelihood security. The Emergency Market Mapping and Analysis Toolkit (EMMA) 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. This toolkit can help prevent lasting damage to the livelihoods, jobs and businesses on which people's long-term security depends. EMMA is designed for generalists, as well as specialist staff working in the food security, shelter, water and sanitation sectors. The author takes them through ten practical steps so they can both 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. Instead, the focus is on simple visual, graphical and largely qualitative ways of describing the impact of the emergency on people and on the critical market systems upon which they most rely.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM), with technical support from the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) and in coordination with the Global Camp Coordination and Camp Management Cluster, developed and implemented a two-phase project in various camp and camp-like settings targeted at supporting opportunities for women’s equal and meaningful participation in camp governance structures. The project was delivered through a participatory approach that included developing community-designed and led empowerment strategies. The first phase of the project involved assessing how displaced men, women, and various at-risk groups, including adolescent girls and women and girls with disabilities, participated in camp life and camp decision-making processes, and this also led to exploring strategies that could facilitate opportunities to increasing women and girls’ participation and improving their feelings regarding overall safety in the camp. These strategies were subsequently developed into community-designed interventions, such as skills and leadership training. The second phase of the project consisted of assessing the outcomes of these interventions as they relate to fostering women's and girls’ participation in camp life and camp governance, and whether their participation led to any changes to their perception of safety. As part of a broader global-level project aimed at reducing gender-based violence (GBV) risks in camps and camp-like settings, the project was premised on evidence that scaling up women’s agency in the public and private sphere is critical to social transformation and preventing violence against women and girls in all settings.  For further information on this project and others please visit, https://womenindisplacement.org/, where you can find out more about accessing toolkits and training.
