Hi Everyone - please take a look at my recent blog on the BEAM Exchange which looks at the strengths and weaknesses of the current evidence to support use of the market systems approach:

This is a short overview of the longer Narrative Synthesis of the current evidence base that I wrote with Jessica Rust-Smith . Take a look and let us know what you think!

Good sober thinking. Some additional questions arise with regards to success - who is really looking at sustainability of MSA - in social and environmental ways (as well as financial) - and how do MSAs compare to or complement other approaches (including more interventionist ones such as Graduation).

Hi Robinson, that's a powerful reader, thanks for sharing, as a matter of fact I was discussing the same with a colleague a couple of days ago, there could be a lot of compromise around measuring impact evidence or evidence in the wider system owing to complexity issues and budgetary constraints, varying from one programme/organization.
