Analysing market systems in emergencies – the EMMA toolkit
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.

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.
