What is market systems development, and how does it change how we work? How does it change how we engage, manage and learn? 

Achieving sustainable impact at scale is the objective of most development projects. Inclusive market systems development is increasingly recognized as an effective means for achieving this objective. Over the last five years, ACDI/VOCA has been working to incorporate market systems approaches across our programming. On August 2, technical staff from our projects in Africa, Central America and Central Asia, as well as our affiliates Tanager and AV Ventures, will share challenges, successes and innovations in the pivot to a markets systems approach. Topics will include gender inclusion, multi-stage analysis and co-creation, adaptive management, engaging the private sector and catalyzing investment, monitoring, evaluation and learning. Margie Brand of EcoVentures International will facilitate the discussion and draw out lessons for future programming. Please join us to contribute to this conversation!
