Understanding Market Drivers in Syria
Study conducted by the SIM Consortium (Syria Independent Monitoring) in partnership with iMMAP, commissioned by DFID (report initially released in January 2018).
This report documents the findings of an in-depth assessment of the olive/olive oil and spice/herb market systems in northeastern and northwestern Syria. This specific assessment helps illustrate market and trade patterns and dynamics that are relevant to other food commodities systems in the country. Findings and recommendations are relevant to all humanitarian actors interested in increasing the resilience of food-insecure communities in Syria, while avoiding the risk of fuelling the war economy.
