This training is designed to prepare humanitarian practitioners from any sector or department to participate in an EMMA assessment. It can be and has often been conducted as a standalone training, which typically involves three-and-a-half days of classroom training and a day-and-a-half of practical field exercises; however, it has been found to be more effective when combined with an actual EMMA assessment exercise.

This course provides original insights and knowledge on market-based programming and market monitoring in humanitarian settings. It offers a comprehensive understanding as to what market analysis and monitoring can and cannot achieve to improve humanitarian programming. Instead of focusing on a single tool, it provides an overview of the existing approaches and equips participants with the skills and confidence to pick the one that is fit for purpose.
The course is interactive (i.e. minimum slide show presentation), drawing on participants’ experiences and knowledge. Time will be dedicated to address practical challenges that participants may have faced in their current positions. The course is delivered in English. We limit the number of participants to 20 to ensure small and participatory group.
By the end of the five days training participants will be able to:
1/ Explain the different market-related concepts and terminologies;
2/ Discuss what market data can be used for in emergency settings;
3/ Set the scope for market analysis and market monitoring;
4/ Decide which market assessment tools and approaches to use;
5/ Support a market assessment exercise;
6/ Use market data to inform pre- and post-crisis humanitarian responses;
7/ Identify which overall skills are transferable to market assessment and analysis.
