2019 SEEP Annual Conference - Building resilience through market systems

21 Oct 2019 – 23 Oct 2019
Arlington, Virginia, USA
Seep Network

The annual conference will highlight proven and experimental strategies that harness the potential of markets to support people, enterprises and communities that are highly vulnerable to the shock-stress-shock cycle.

The conference will address the following questions:

  • How can access to markets contribute to greater resilience for vulnerable households?
  • How are financial services, formal and informal, contributing to increased resiliency?
  • What is the role of social capital and social networks in nurturing resilience and supporting livelihoods?
  • What are the specific challenges to advancing resilience in thin markets and fragile contexts?
  • Can women’s empowerment and gender equality serve as a source of resilience?
  • How can we better harness data to strengthen market resilience overall?

The conference theme is articulated around four technical tracks:

  • Fostering Resilience through Financial Inclusion
  • Leveraging Markets for Resilience in Fragile Environments
  • Gender Equality as a Resilience Strategy
  • Data and Resilience – Building the Evidence Base
