The power of local markets in fragility - humanitarian conflict-sensitive adaptation

Webstream (without interpretation)
Humanitarian Talks


The session will focus on improving humanitarian actors’ understanding of linkages between market functionality, supply and demand within changing humanitarian contexts, often also hampered by limited understanding of how community members and different groups interact with and influence market dynamics (particularly when they are also party to ongoing conflict). Speakers from different Fragile Contexts and market and peace experts share their experiences, tool adaptation to better leverage local markets and enabling mechanisms such as cash, voucher assistance in humanitarian, recovery and peace programming regarding disaster and conflict preparedness and response, fostering self-sufficiency and addressing increased risk and vulnerability of affected communities, traders and state actors.
