Practical Action

Guidance on participatory market mapping, which is central to PMSD.

It involves organising and running a series of flexible workshops that bring market actors together to make sense of the market system and identify actions that support improved inclusivity and market growth. It is vital for the development of ownership and agency of local market actors in the market development process.

It can also be designed to focus on outcomes that improve gender equity and resilience.
