A short animation explaining the market based programming framework.

It was developed by the Markets in Crises (MiC) Community of Practice and has been designed to help humanitarian actors understand market approaches in fragile contexts.

Market-based programming aims to support local markets and contribute to positive market systems change. The better humanitarian and development actors understand markets, the deeper they can engage with markets. The term covers all types of engagement with market systems - from actions that deliver immediate relief, to proactively strengthening and catalysing local market systems or market hubs. 

Versions are also available in Arabic, and soon in French and Spanish.
