Really, really exciting to hear this, Roger! I thought the original MSMA Toolkit was already a great resource, so I can imagine this new version will be really excellent. Also very happy to hear about the planned translations. Thanks to all who worked on this!

Dear friends

UNHCR and NRC have revised the Multi-Sector Market Assessment Guidance and Toolkit, a key part of our efforts to make better programme design decisions, to help ensure that our work uses and supports the markets in which the people we serve get the goods and services needed for survival and their livelihoods.

It's more user-friendly with crisp examples, and the tools have been revised to support better learning. The workflow has been streamlined, to make it clearer that we don't always have to do a full-blown assessment and we can make better use of the secondary data we already have. And it's been made more flexible so it can more easily be used to understand a market for services as well as goods.

Spanish, French and Arabic versions will be available by the end of 2020 (or really really soon after!)
