In fragile and conflict affected areas (FCAS) households, businesses and communities can react to crises in ways that adversely impact their ability to rebuild markets and undermine longer term well-being. In tandem, humanitarian response and economic recovery programs can unintentionally disrupt and distort market systems.
In light of these challenges, there is increasing interest from all actors to develop and innovate programs that build resiliency in FCAS using market-based approaches.
