This handbook is the result of lessons learned by the ICRC from implementing microeconomic initiatives (MEIs) in various countries. An MEI is an income-generating programme that takes a bottom-up approach, involving beneficiaries personally in identifying and designing the help they receive. This can be vocational training, productive grants or microcredit loans, or a combination of all three.
The handbook is intended for field practitioners with experience of humanitarian programmes and of the ICRC’s economic security approach.
