Al diseñar una intervención humanitaria y decidir si se utilizan los PTM, el análisis de mercado debe ser parte del análisis global de la respuesta.

Esto incluye intervenciones que utilizan los mercados (como las transferencias en efectivo a poblaciones afectadas), así como intervenciones que apoyan directamente a los mercados (como subvenciones condicionales a los comerciantes para recuperar su mercado y mantenerlos funcionando).
