Market systems development in fragile contexts

Published by

A synthesis of how Sida, as a donor, could implement more inclusive and sustainable interventions in fragile contexts and reach the most vulnerable whilst avoiding doing harm to the local market systems.

The paper looks at the role of markets in fragile contexts and how MSD can be adapted to help.

It emphasises the shift in mindset needed by large donors in order to integrate MSD thinking. It provides some examples of MSD processes that have been used in fragile contexts.
