Emergency Market Mapping and Analysis (EMMA) is a rapid market analysis designed to be used in the short-term aftermath of a sudden-onset crisis. This report uses the EMMA tool to analyze the agricultural labor market system in the Sud-Est (Southeast) department of Haiti in March-April 2010, several months after the January 12 earthquake in Haiti. The report describes the baseline and affected situation of the agricultural labor market system and analyzes the likely impact of various interventions aimed at meeting households’ basic needs.
