Strengthening inclusive market systems

CNFA integrates a market-systems approach across all of its programming by focusing on inclusive, resilient and sustainable interventions that identify systemic gaps in markets and reflect a deep understanding of the incentives and behaviors that motivate market actors. As part of this approach, CNFA ensures that actors are competitive in the local and global system; that the benefits to actors are inclusive of smallholder farmers, women, youth and other disadvantaged groups; and that programs are able to overcome market shocks. CNFA’s market systems interventions correspond to the areas of greatest need, closely monitoring results to ensure evidence-based approaches and leveraging new technologies, partnerships and practices to maximize impacts, therefore improving the ability of households and communities to access income.
