Multi-Sector Market Assessment Fafan Zone, Ethiopia
This report covers the findings of the Multi-Sector Market Assessment (MSMA) conducted in Fafan Zone, Ethiopia in February and March 2018. The assignment formed part of the ERC-MPG Consortium on Approaches to Transformative Humanitarian Cash Transfer programming and is intended to support joint, multi-sectoral key decisions on cash transfer programming. The assessment was undertaken in Fafan zone (Somali Region) markets serving four woredas covered by the MPG Consortium – Babile, Hareshen, Kebribeyah and Tuliguled. These woredas are affected by both drought and conflict resulting in internal displacement of Somali households from neighbouring Oromia, and poverty of resident
households across the woredas. Prospects for a short-term durable solution for the conflict situation are slim, as security issues dominate the agenda and attention of the national government.
