Market Support Interventions in Humanitarian Contexts – a Tip Sheet
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. It was developed by the CALP Network with members of its Markets Working Group, with particular support from Catholic Relief Services (CRS) who contributed extensively to the testing and design of the tip sheet.
