Updated Market-Based Programming Framework

2016 — By Markets in Crises

The Market Based Programming framework was designed to help humanitarian actors understand market approaches in fragile contexts. Some degree of market analysis is a critical part of all situation and response analyses. At a minimum, all humanitarian programming should be “market aware”. The better humanitarian and development actors understand markets, the deeper they can engage with markets.

The framework is included on page one of the document with guidance on how to read and utilise it on the second page. The factors included in the framework mimic an  Emergency Market Mapping and Analysis (EMMA) map, in that the market actors are across the middle, with policies and supporting environment across the top, and infrastructure and services along the bottom.

This is the latest version, updated in 2022.
