Resilient market systems: Workshop report and an emerging framework

This report on a CARE workshop on our work on resilient market systems in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region provides key discussion points as well as CARE’s emerging thinking as a result of the workshop.

The document houses the learnings and recommendations from the workshop held in Cairo in March 2016. The document does not represent a conclusion of CARE’s thinking in relation to resilient market systems but rather a step towards finalising a more solid framework for this work.
