Jointly organized by the ITCILO, the Norwegian Refugee Council and the SEEP Network, the Resilient Markets Academy provides an opportunity to learn about practices and innovations in market systems development in the areas of livelihoods, housing as well as water and sanitation services. Market-based programmes rebuild supply and demand-side functions through sustainable interventions that mitigate the shock-stress-shock cycle. These approaches are all the more relevant where fragility continues, aid dependency is prolonged and more traditional forms of aid prove unsuccessful in surmounting the challenges of protracted crises.
