Abstract:

Until recently, understanding markets and the challenges of market development were not prominent issues for agencies involved in emergencies and disaster response. This is now changing. Humanitarian organizations are recognizing that local markets can play a vital role in efficiently supplying critical goods or services to ensure people's survival, and protect their livelihoods, in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. Moreover, they are realizing that market systems matter to emergency-affected populations, who depend on them for income and inputs during times of crisis and beyond.
