Hi Liz, thanks to Ania and Chris I just found REACH https://www.reach-initiative.org/
They seem to have a newsletter, not sure if they are sending out the data in the mailing list (would be logical) but regardless, it has some great information esp mkt info for Ukraine!
Much appreciated Ania and Chris!

Hi all,

WVI just completed an RNA in Chernivtsi, Ukraine. Quite a specific location, but linking here <https: publications="" rapid-needs-assessment-displaced-families-chernivtsi-ukraine="" ukraine="" www.wvi.org=""> in case the parts on cash feasibility (access to markets and money) are helpful.

We have similar briefs available for Romania too – Bucharest <https: publications="" rapid-needs-assessment-ukrainian-refugees-bucharest-romania="" ukraine="" www.wvi.org=""> and Iasi <https: iasi-rapid-needs-assessment-refugee-needs-and-journeys-northeast-romania="" publications="" ukraine="" www.wvi.org=""> – in case those are useful for others.

Best,

Hello,
REACH has concluded RNA, RMAs, they’re comprehensive.
When it comes to cash feasibility the overall consensus is MPCA is feasible
with post offices, amts functional, no problems with liquidity (unless
planning for response in Ilovaysk, sigh!), accessibility of goods.
Ukraine CWG owns a plethora of material.
kind regards,
Ania

Dear Rob,

Thanks for your message. In Ukraine, REACH, on behalf of the Ukraine CWG, has been fine-tuning a methodology for online market monitoring in conflict-affected and displacement-affected areas. This methodology tracks the availability of core market commodities via online platforms, the accuracy of which has been verified by field teams; assigns availability scores to each area for monitored food items and hygiene NFIs; and combines the results with secondary data review to give insight into the sources of supply chain constraints. It doesn’t touch on every aspect of market functionality, but it can be a useful tool. Please find past factsheets linked here: 17 March 2022 <https: 0f3a195a="" document="" reach_ukr_rapidanalysis_market_supply_march2022_5.pdf="" repository="" www.impact-repository.org="">, 14 April 2022 <https: bab39b5f="" document="" reach="" ukr_rapid_assessment_online_availability_monitor_2_14042022.pdf="" www.impact-repository.org="">.

Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions.

Best regards,
Chris Paci

I am working on a proposal (for Ukraine at the moment) and it occurred to me that I end up going out to find info from various sites, usually starting with a google search, every time when trying to help determine things like how functional markets are and how strong the case is for cash (or vouchers) in a said area.
I am hoping there is a site in particular that tracks this kind of thing. Of course, places like WTO talk about disruptions *stemming* from Ukraine, but not so much about disruptions (or what is still functioning) within Ukraine – or other countries.
Any thoughts welcome!
Thanks in advance
