Market Systems for Resilience: A framework for measurement
Market systems resilience is a relatively unexplored area in development. This paper explores market systems resilience and proposes a theory of change for strengthening market system resilience.
This paper begins by examining markets as complex adaptive systems to better understand—at the system level as opposed to the individual, household, community or even enterprise level—how market systems respond to shocks and stresses. With this understanding, the characteristics of market systems resilience are explored and a theory of change for how to strengthen market system resilience capacities is proposed. This paper ends with a tool for assessing market system resilience.
