This report summarizes the findings from the Beirut Port Blast emergency market mapping and assessment (EMMA) for construction materials. This EMMA focused specifically on those markets that are critical for supporting the reconstruction materials needs of Beirut Port Blast-affected people.
The specific objectives of the EMMA study are as follows:
- To identify, through a market analysis, appropriate humanitarian response options to meet shelter recovery needs, with a particular emphasis on market-based programming activities.
- To strengthen the market analysis capacity of both national and international NGO/Agency staff, and of relevant members of the broader humanitarian community.
