Across the globe, agricultural market systems support farmers, consumers, and a wide range of other actors during normal times, but when hit with shocks such as COVID-19, markets need to adapt. The ability to adapt in an inclusive and competitive manner not only makes a market system resilient, but also helps both producers and consumers weather shocks and bounce back better. As development practitioners, how can we leverage market systems as part of our response to COVID-19?
Please join us to hear from USAID about how market systems programming can help speed up recovery from crises, while learning from ongoing research in Senegal that analyzes how farmer networks have adapted in response to COVID-19. Finally, discover how a development program in Somalia is helping target private sector resilience capacities in addition to other economic growth outcomes.
