Resilience Measurement of Market Systems

Speeches Shim

Resilience Measurement of Market Systems in Kenya (RMS-Kenya) uses USAID’s market systems resilience framework to identify and strengthen the capability of market systems to respond to shocks and stresses. A market system is “a dynamic space that incorporates resources, roles, relationships, rules, and results. In this space, private and public actors collaborate, coordinate, and compete for the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services.”

In the face of shocks and stresses, market systems are vital to a society’s ability to identify, focus, and provide resources in response to risks and opportunities. RMS-Kenya will conduct field-based testing to understand how the crop, livestock, and dairy markets respond to elements of the market system such as competition, connectivity, and diversity, which impact its ability to mitigate shocks and facilitate inclusive growth. RMS-Kenya will also provide field-tested improvements to the market systems resilience framework.
