Market Systems Development (MSD) to Reduce Poverty

All Events

This course provides a basic introduction to the concepts and methods behind market systems development (MSD), an approach to understanding and overcoming the failure of systems to serve the needs of the poor. Contrary to traditional project approaches, in which implementing agencies provide or support services that go directly to the poor, an agency applying MSD acts as a facilitator to align key players and functions of a system to produce sustainable results. The approach was originally developed to analyze and strengthen market systems and private sector development — which will be the focus of the course. Today, the approach is also applied to systems with predominantly public sector activities, such as education systems.
