This paper provides a framework of guiding questions for conducting Rapid Market Assessments and for selecting sectors that, while advancing decent work objectives, aim to address one or more environmental objectives.

Value chain or market systems development (VCD/MSD) is an increasingly popular methodology for promoting growth and decent work. The approach also holds potential for analysing systemic constraints to environmental issues, particularly as they relate to growth, jobs, income, and other social issues. 

VCD/MSD that addresses environmental considerations can play a vital role in promoting sustainable enterprise development and a just transition towards environmentally sustainable economies.




MSP and the BEAM Exchange are seeking feedback on MSD tools in the beta library to identify those tools that have the greatest proven utility and impact. We are asking the MSD community to complete a short survey (2 mins) of their top 5-10 tools to provide input into this curation process. Click below to participate!
