Supporting Markets to Recover: Tips and Tricks from the Markets in Crisis Community of Practice

Jul 19, 2018 | by


Have you heard about market support programming but don’t quite understand what it is or how to put it into practice? The webinar will introduce participants to the Market Support Tip Sheet, a new resource that provides guidance on how to design and implement high-quality market support programming throughout the program cycle, based on practitioners’ learning to date. We’ll also hear about how this resource can be applied in the field, using examples of programming from the WaSH Cluster and post-earthquake Nepal. Although anyone interested is welcome, this webinar is especially suitable for field-facing practitioners in charge of designing, managing and evaluating emergency response programs as well as for technical advisory staff who support humanitarian field programs.
