Market Analysis in Emergencies

The recent emphasis on market analysis has been on its use in the relatively new modality of cash transfers, but it is relevant for all kinds of agency response. Understanding how markets are affected by crises and how agency response can both be informed by markets as well as impact markets is a fundamental part of continued development in systematic programme design.

This paper will address two key challenges arising from obstacles to more comprehensive and consistent detailed market analysis. By examining the capacity and current thinking within the sector this report discusses how we can improve the quality of market analysis, and its impact on humanitarian programmes.
