New Markets Support Tip Sheet and Webinar

Have you heard about market support programming but don’t quite understand what it is or how to put it into practice? CaLP has developed a tip sheet with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and our Markets Working Group, and will share tips and tricks from the community of practice in a launch webinar on 19 July.

5 July 2018

When emergencies disrupt markets, crisis affected people may be unable to cover their needs or access labor or a source of income.

In partnership with our Markets Working Group, and with extensive testing and design support from Catholic Relief Services (CRS), CaLP launches a tip sheet for Market Support Interventions in Humanitarian Contexts.

This tip sheet defines what market support programming in humanitarian contexts is, and what it can look like in practice. It enables humanitarian practitioners to systematically consider market support interventions alongside other programme activities. The scope includes support interventions focusing on supply/availability and on demand/access. The tip sheet is based on secondary data collation, interviews with humanitarian practitioners, and existing standards.

On 19 July, we will host a webinar with the SEEP Network to introduce the tip sheet and share tips and tricks from the community of practice.

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

When: July 19th at 9:30-10:30 am EST

Speakers: 

  • Isabelle Pelly, CaLP Technical Coordinator
  • Jenny Lamb, Technical Advisor – Public Health Engineering (WASH), Global Humanitarian Team at Oxfam
  • Krishna Mohan, Program Manager – Recovery and Resilience at Catholic Relief Services (CRS)
  • Emily Sloane, Emergency Markets Officer at International Rescue Committee (IRC)
  • Dina Brick, Technical Advisor for Food Security & Markets at Catholic Relief Services (CRS)

The webinar will introduce participants to the Market Support Tip Sheet. 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.
