On 14th March CaLP and its Markets Working Group held a webinar to present some of the main technical developments in Market-Based Programming (MBP) over the last year.
The webinar started with an introduction by CRS to the revised MBP framework which presents the full range of MBP options, working through or supporting markets. CaLP then presented an overview of the Minimum Standard for Market Analysis, which should be systematically applied as part of response analysis, to inform all MBP.
Oxfam provided an introduction to its Markets Compass, which supports the appropriate selection of market analysis tools, based on programme objective and context. ACAPS presented a valuable new information product which provides an aggregated analysis of market data across agencies. Here is an example from Haiti. IRC introduced their current work on a market information framework, which will provide guidance on how to make decisions on the basis of market data (please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in contributing to the review of the product). For all those wanting to build their capacity in market analysis, CaLP provided a reminder of available courses.
Finally, webinar participants took part in a poll which has provided very valuable input for future webinars in the Markets series, so many thanks to all. Download the presentation and watch the recording here.
