Designing and Implementing Market-led Interventions in Forced Displacement Settings

The ILO’s Approach to Inclusive Market Systems (AIMS) applies the market systems development approach to the context of forced displacement and therefore calls for the design and implementation of tailor-made strategies based on a through market systems analysis. Yet, forced displacement contexts are often characterized by fragile or thin markets and can be associated with a host of additional unique challenges that make the design and implementation of sustainable market-led approaches particularly difficult.

This brief is intended for practitioners and project teams involved in market-led development projects in contexts of forced displacement, and provides step-by-step guidance on how to design and implement tailor-made AIMS strategies based on results of a market systems analysis.
